Hello,
I tried to install the Blog Package at my local SharePoint installation by executing the batch file. Everything worked fine, but I am not able to activate the Feature. Trying to activating the feature causes the error "Value does not fall within the expected range" (German: "Der Wert liegt außerhalb des erwarteten Bereichs").
The SharePoint log file provides the following entries:
Failed to determine definition for Feature with ID '9cbf5d73-ae5d-4475-b0af-647fc2dc667d'.  Skipping this feature for element querying consideration.

I have a German installation of SharePoint, maybe there is a problem with localization? Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

Sounds good :-)
I will localize the other themes as well. Just give me some time.
