This issue has been solved. See solution.


1 of our customers is interested in purchasing Backup Exec 2012, however they previously used CA ArcServe and had trouble installing on to a Dutch Windows Server. The OS was installed as Dutch and apearantly the SQL instance which was required for installing ArcServe would not install on the Dutch OS, as it was en English build. apearantly the English build of SQL Server could not handle the Colation pack provided by the Dutch Windows OS. 

i was wondering if Backup Exec has the same issues with installing on to a Dutch Windows OS?

Kind regards,

Refer to Nick Elmer's comments below, especially with regards to the fact that Symantec ship BE in 12 languages. If Dutch is 1 of them, then you can install that version:

Here's the link for the trial download:

There was an issue (the SQL setup uses non-english) earlier, but I believe it has been resolved if you use the latest installer (i.e. a slipstreamer installer of BE 2012 + SP1)
