I added a language for en_NZ (New Zealand) i had some issues with WPML so i did the complete reset feature as i wanted to start all over again.

Now when i go to add the NZ language again it says:

The default locale already exists.

NZ is not visable to be selected from the language list.

NZ is not able to be added as a new language with en_NZ local and hreflang

It seems the reset did not delete it from the previous install database.

How can I add it and use it again or select it.
