Error: Culture ID 2155 (0x086B) is not a supported culture RRS feed

  • Question

  • I run a small program to show all installed win32 cultures on my PC. After running this, program shows me exception like “System.ArgumentException: Culture ID 2155 (0x086B) is not a supported culture. Parameter name: culture

    Anyone having idea of fixing this problem? I want to ger rid of this error and because of this, I am started getting some other errors.

    I have Dot Net Framework 2.0 installed on my PC. Is this because of some installation problem of Dot Net Framework? To fix this up, I tried uninstalling and Reinstalling Dot_Net_Framework_2_0 but still it did not work.

  • Hello

     

    I have a similar problem.  I am getting the same error as you have listed.  Did you find a solution yet?

     

    I have tried uninstall/reinstall of .netframework and visual studio 2005 few times already and it doesn't help.

  • What culture code does give you a headache? How do you get this invalid culture identifier anyway?

    The .NET Framework does accept only a predefined list of cultures:

    If your culture is not on the list below it is not supported by the .NET Framework.
