Messages about missing KWizCom Rating resource files in SharePoint ULS logs

Rating Solution


The error: "Cannot open "KWizComRating.<languagecode2>-<country/regioncode2>.resx": no such file or folder." is present in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007/2010/2013 ULS logs. You may receive this error for any language installed on your SharePoint server.


If you  have multiple languages installed on your SharePoint server, you may get multiple errors in different languages about KWizCom Rating resource file. Typically these files will use the following naming convention: KWizComRating.<languagecode2>-<country/regioncode2>.resx.

For Example:

Kann "" nicht öffnen: Datei oder Ordner mit diesem Namen existiert nicht. 

Não é possível abrir "": não existe tal arquivo ou pasta. 

Impossible d'ouvrir "" : ce fichier ou dossier n'existe pas.

This is caused by the fact that  SharePoint is looking for the localized KWizCom Rating resource file in the "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\[12] or [14] or [15]\Resources" folder and cannot find it there.


  1. Open the directory C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\[12] or [14] or [15]\Resources
  2. Open a command prompt and browse to the same directory
  3. Run the following commands for all languages you have installed on your SharePoint server:

    Examples for SharePoint 2007 for English, German and French languages are below:
    -copy KWizComRating.resx KWizComRating.en-US.resx
    -copy KWizComRating.resx
    -copy KWizComRating.resx

    Examples for SharePoint 2010/2013 for English, German and French languages are below:
    -copy KWizCom.SharePoint.Rating.resx KWizCom.SharePoint.Rating.en-US.resx
    -copy KWizCom.SharePoint.Rating.resx
    -copy KWizCom.SharePoint.Rating.resx

  4. Repeat the step for all the languages you have installed in your SharePoint environment

This will copy the default resource files to the Localized version resource files and the messages will disappear. You can also perform all these steps manually by copying, pasting and renaming the original KWizComRating.resx for each language you have installed in your SharePoint environment.
