K2 Five Language Pack fails with error: "Target did not complete successfully: German - Site - Globalization"

This article was created in response to a support issue logged with K2. The content may include typographical errors and may be revised at any time without notice. This article is not considered official documentation for K2 software and is provided "as is" with no warranties.


When running the below command on the silent installer of the K2 Language Pack:

SourceCode.SetupManager.exe /NoUI /silentlang de

It will fail with the error in command line:

"Execute AppCmd.exe with arguments: set config "[K2SITENAME]" /section:globalization /uiculture:de

Process Output: ERROR ( message:Cannot find SITE object with identifier "[K2SITENAME]". )

Done executing AppCmd.exe. Success: False Target did not complete successfully: German - Site - Globalization"



The language pack will only install some components on K2 Smartforms, which results in all the functions not working as expected.


This was noted as a known issue in the K2 Language Pack silent installer and will be corrected in a future release of K2.

As a workaround, please install the language pack with the GUI on the environment and not the silent installer, as the silent installer has the known issue.
