When you upgrade a German version of Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1), the installed Microsoft Software License Terms file for the SQL Server Transact-SQL language service is in Chinese. However, you would expect the installed license terms file to be in German.

By default, the license terms file is installed to the following location:

On a 64-bit-based computer:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\SDK\Assemblies\enOn a 32-bit-based computer:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\SDK\Assemblies\enNote During the installation of the German version of Visual Studio 2010 SP1, the license terms are displayed in German.


This problem occurs because an incorrect TSQLLanguageService.msi is chained in Visual Studio 2010 SP1.


To resolve this problem, install the updated license terms file for the German version of SQL Server Transact-SQL language service.

The following file is available for download from the Microsoft Download Center:

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
