This is almost certainly because we don't ship the langpacks with the Wubi disk images and don't install the update notifier note to run Language Support. I'll need to have a think about how to best handle this.

In the meantime, just to be certain there's nothing else at play here, can you please attach /host/ubuntu/install/preseed.cfg to this bug report?

This bug was fixed in the package lupin - 0.47

lupin (0.47) oneiric; urgency=low

  * Fix a typo that was preventing the timezone from getting set in Wubi
    disk image installs (LP: #855287).
  * Provide a warning that the desktop is not localized and that
    Language Support needs to be run, for Wubi disk image installs in
    languages other than English (LP: #855295).

I saw no notification and /var/lib/update-notifier/user.d is empty. I'm reopening this report.

closing again this issue is fixed but there is now a 'file not found' error, so settings are not applied during installation. I'll file another report. sorry for the noise.
