Export languages and supplemental fonts to be installed in another Windows 2019 server.

Hi there,

I'm looking for a way to export a additional feature installed in a server to another.

More specifically I need to install some Language Packs and Supplemental fonts in a Windows 2019 server.

The issue is that server is not connected to the internet which don't allow me to use Add Feature option.

I have another Windows 2019 Server that is connected to the internet and I was able to install all the fonts/languages that I need.

So... my question is...

Is there any way to get the .cab files from the Windows where the features are installed and install them "offline" in the server that is not connected to the Internet?

Enable Internet on that server is not an valid option.

Hello @FlavioBonacordi-1328,

Thank you for posting here.

Based on the description, you can try the following way.

If your system in the offline environment where cannot connect to the internet, please download and install the language pack ISO by using method 2 in the Microsoft Technical Information.

Cannot configure a language pack for Windows Server 2019 Desktop Experience
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-US/troubleshoot/windows-server/shell-experience/cannot-configure-language-pack-windows-server-desktop-experience

After the installation, return to step 5 and select your language, and click Next. If the following message is displayed, ignore it and click Install.

You’re currently offline. When you’re connected, go to Language settings, select the language in the list, select Options, and finish downloading.

After that, check if the supplemental fonts you want is also installed.


Or I assume server1 is with Internet, server2 is not with Internet.

You can try to use the image with the corresponding languages and supplemental fonts installed on server1 to install on server2.

Hope the information above is helpful.

Should you have any question or concern, please feel free to let us know.


Best Regards,
Daisy Zhou

`Hi @DaisyZhou-MSFT
I Really appreciate your reply.
Let me give you an update about this
You ended up giving me a link which I had already found and which I used to deploy some of the languages on the 2019 Server.
I wasn't able to intsall the KB since the server complains saying THE UPDATE IS NOT APPLICABLE TO YOUR COMPUTER.
Server 1 - Windows 2019 Server - No Internet Access
I has able to deploy some of the Language Packs and Supplemental fonts using the ISO file in https://software-download.microsoft.com/download/pr/17763.1.180914-1434.rs5_release_SERVERLANGPACKDVD_OEM_MULTI.iso
Still missing the following that aren't present on the ISO file.
- Begali (Begala)
- Hindi, Marathi (Devanagari)
- Gujarati (Gujarati)
- Tamil (Tamil)
- Kannada (Kannada)

Server 2 - Windows 2019 Server with Internet connection
I was able to install all using ADD FEATURES on windows.
Looking for a way to deploy the missing ones or to "extract" the ones installed on server 2 to move to server 1.

Hello @FlavioBonacordi-1328,

Based on my experience, if it does not work above, it seems there is no way to achieve the requirement.

Thank you for your understanding and support.
