About this task

Note: If you want to remove a language from an ADX computer that uses the Metasys Advanced Reporting system, do not remove English as a language.
Note: When you add or remove a language, it can take approximately 10 minutes for the change to take affect.


  1. Start the LIP tool.
  2. In the Select Application list, select Metasys server or application. You can remove languages from the products in the following list:
    • Metasys Server (ADS/ADX, OAS, NXE85, LCS8520) and Metasys UI
    • Metasys Open Data Server (ODS)
    • Advanced Reporting System (ARS)
    • Johnson Controls System Configuration Tool (JCT)
    • System Configuration Tool (SCT 10.x and above)
    Note: For the System Configuration Tool (SCT) from Release 10.0 and later and Metasys Advanced Reporting System, you must complete the authentication credentials for Microsoft SQL ServerĀ® database
  3. To establish communication between the LIP and the server, complete the credentials in the SQL Settings window.
    If you log on to the same machine that the SQL Server is installed on, complete the following steps:
    1. Select the Use Default Database Instance check box. This disables the Instance Name field, and uses the local SQL Server instance on the current machine.
    2. Select the Use Windows Authentication check box. This disables the Username and Password fields, and uses the current Windows user to log on to SQL Server.
    If SQL Server is located on a different machine to the one you are working on, complete the following steps:
    1. In the Instance Name field, type the domain and full SQL Server name in the following format <hostname>\<instancename>.
    2. To determine the SQL Server instance, start the SQL Server Configuration Manager for your version of SQL Server.
    3. In the left pane, click SQL Server Services.
    4. In the right pane, the name of the SQL Server instance is in parentheses, for example SQLEXPRESS or MSSQLSERVER. Click OK.
    5. In the Username and Password fields, type your SQL Server log on credentials.
  4. In the Additional Languages area, in the In Use field, select the language you want to remove. Click Remove.
  5. The Results window displays the progress of the request change and the system saves the results to a text file called log.txt. To open the results, click the Results hyperlink. If the Results window contains an error message, refer to the Troubleshooting section in the Language Installation Program Help (LIT-12011349).
  6. In the Additional Languages area, in the In Use field, verify the language is correct.
    Repeat these steps, if the following applies:
    • You want to remove additional languages.
    • You want to remove the same language for other products installed on the same machine.
