Home » Additional language packs prevent Windows 10 build from downloading

We all know about the frequent and common update-related issues that prevent Windows 10 users and Insiders from downloading new updates and build. But every now and then, an unusual update-related error no one expects pops up.

That’s exactly the case with the latest Windows 10 Preview build 15048. Microsoft warns users that if they have any additional language packs, they won’t be able to download the new build. This could be a very serious issue, especially for international users.

Luckily, Microsoft also provided an immediate workaround, so if you encounter this problem there’s no need to panic. Instead, follow these steps:

  1. Open Settings > Time & Language > Region & Language
  2. Right-click and remove any additional languages other than your current system language
  3. Close settings
  4. Go to Search, type run and press Enter
  5. Now, enter the following command:  Lpksetup /u
  6. This will open a separate window. Remove any additional languages other than your current system language
  7. Reboot your PC
  8. Re-scan for updates

After performing this, you should have no problems installing the new build. We still don’t know if users will have any problems downloading language packs once the new build is installed, though. So, if you’ve encountered this issue and managed to install the build using this workaround, feel free to let us know about your results in the comments below.

Since this problem occurs in the Windows 10 Preview build, we’re sure Microsoft will work it out in some of the future builds so you shouldn’t worry about facing the same issues once the Creators Update is released.
