Add support to multi language server core 2019 when running on containers
Default servercore:1809 image came with en-US.
- At this moment, for Server Core 2019, you have to install language pack by yourself: https://docs.microsoft.com/pt-br/windows-server/get-started-19/rel-notes-19.
- The way to do it, is using lpksetup: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4466511/cannot-configure-language-pack-for-windows-server-2019
- But lpksetup.exe crashes when running on container
I've described step by step how to reproduce lpksetup.exe error on container, **producing crash report logs** that I've extracted from container.
All here: https://github.com/sanguedemonstro/docker-playground/issues/1#issuecomment-453078549
But I'm not able to understand logs or fix windows base image. And I can't open support ticket once I'm not MS partner.
So if anyone could help I'm here to support.

Hi, @Nick Young,
What I need is to install language pt-BR on servercore 2019 container, and be able to Set-WinSystemLocale to pt-BR.
Running over random hosts win 10 server and/or desktop, with random languages.

Not sure what your use case is but you might want to take a look at https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/0c4a2452-efd5-4e39-bd58-9748201e1670/codepages-in-servercorenanoserver?forum=windowscontainers
I'm not sure what you're trying to do, but I hit a similar problem - in my case I had to set the install the language pack on the host machine, set the language/codepage etc in the host before starting a container.
