Who has a Workaround for Windows XP “KB2509553 Setup Error: Setup cannot update your Windows XP files because the language installed on your system is different from the update language.”?

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/04/13

Recently I was at a site where the KB2509553 security update on Windows XP would not install because of this error, even after retrying a couple of times:

---------------------------
KB2509553 Setup Error
---------------------------
Setup cannot update your Windows XP files because the language

installed on your system is different from the update language.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

The error came from the Dutch version of Microsoft Update and the (also Dutch) Autoupdate inside Windows XP.

The solution that seemed easy didn’t work:

Manually download the Dutch version at the KB2509553 download page, and install that one.

Thanks Halima S for mentioning this on the Microsoft Answers site.

So: where should I start looking to get this security update installed?
