Language Mis-match!

The "LANGUAGE" parameter of the "MergeModule" command should match one of the languages specified in the "Languages" summary information which can be displayed using "ORCA" (or see the "TEMPLATE" summary "property"). If the value specified by this parameter is incorrect you will probably get a message which contains information similar to:

MSI ERROR #2203 (see the Windows Installer documentation)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
System error -2147287038 trying to open the database "MergeModule.Lang0"

For similar non language related issues have a look at the "Cannot open database file - System error" section.
