Language pack issue with Office Web Apps 2013 when upgrading to SP1


Scenario:

Consider if you have done the following:

1) Office Web Server RTM installed
2) Office Web Server RTM language packs installed (all of them)
3) Download and install Office Web Server SP1  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2880558
 
Result: During the setup of Office Web Server SP1, the install will fail with this error:

 
 
Reason: This error occurs because the language packs for 6 specific languages (below) missed making SP1 and because they are installed in the RTM version, SP1 setup tries to upgrade them and fails.

1. Azerbaijani – Latin script (az-latn-az
2. Bosnian – Latin script (bs-latn-ba)
3. Dari (prs-af)
4. Irish Gaelic (ga-ie)
5. Macedonian (FYROM) (mk-mk)
6. Welsh (cy-gb)
 
Workaround: 

Uninstall the six RTM language packs prior to applying SP1.  Then SP1 will install successfully. Finally, after SP1 is installed you may then install the six RTM language packs.
