SQLExpress 2019 setup fails on JA Windows

South River Technologies 11 Reputation points

Hello, I'm trying to install SqlExpress 2019 on Windows 10 Pro with JA region selected and I always get an error "Error 2203: Database: 1041. Cannot open database file"

I'm assuming the 1041 is the JA language specific information instead of the 1033 US English.

How can I force 1033? (I do not want to ship the JA version of the sqlexpress installer).

I tried launching the sql express installer with /LANGUAGE=1033 but that didn't work.
