WSUS Language question

I have selected English and Dutch for WU files in the webinterface, but
there are some updates, like KB892293, KB841876 and .Net framework updates
in several languages downloaded (French, Chinese, Spanish etc etc). Why is
that? This also appears with Office 2003 updates (French grammar).

Regards Huub.

For .NET Framework and SharePoint updates this is by "design", and
you cannot avoid it.

Because you can install any language version of .NET regardless of the
OS language, SUS needs to cover this.

The language(s) you selected in the SUS configuration, was for what
*OS* language(s) you want to support. As you can install the Spanish
version of the .NET Framework on a computer with an English OS, SUS
covers this by downloading the .NET update for all languages.
