  • Thank you @waqas that was the right place. I found the logs, but the problem is more complex than I expected. Indeed I cleared the Windows Installer cache brutaly to free some space on my disk. But it seems that was a big mistake and now the most MSI packages installed on my system can't be updated, repaired or even uninstalled, and this affect the installation of the language pack :(
