Preferred Solution: Problem after installing language pack

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm on my work laptop and wanting to switch languages to English. I'm using Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit.

I know I can supposedly install a language pack via the Update Center. However, because of system restrictions, I don't have access to that. What I DO have access to is a place on my hard drive where I can install a downloaded language pack (again supposedly).

Is there an official Windows 7 language pack I can download? The ones I've found so far seem sketchy (from non-Microsoft websites) or for the beta version of Windows 7.

A:Installing Language Pack Issues

So after further research, I am 90% sure I already have the English language pack installed. However, system restrictions prevent me from switching to English. Under the usual "Keyboard and Languages" tab of "Regional and Language Options", the language section is simply not there at all.

Now I need to find a way to work around that. My office's IT support will not change it for me as local language laws prevent them from doing so.

Any tips?

I have Windows Ultimate x It's a fresh re install After retrieving all available updates including all optional drivers and rebooting I tried to install the language pack on system fails a Installing multi-boot Japanese Language pack via Windows Update and after maybe around twenty minutes of the software trying to install Windows Update reports an install failure The error message is Code Code Windows Update encountered an unknown error I Googled the error code and Microsoft says that the error is caused by a possibly corrupt NET install After using their NET cleaner and reinstalling all the applications the error persists I looked further on Google and read a post by someone with the exact same problem as me It looked like he was able to fix his problem pretty easily and he explains how he resolved it in his following post but his explanation is a little over my head From what I can tell he used bcdboot to tell Windows where the reserved system partition is or something like that But without explicit instructions I'm kind of in the dark I'm not good with Windows I prefer Linux Basically I need what he did explained in Captain Dummy talk I think his solution is the solution to my problem as well

A:Installing language pack on a multi-boot system fails

Hey neat! I fixed it myself by guessing at the guy's instructions!

What he did was issue the following command:

bcdboot C:\windows /s C:
And marked my system partition as active by using the administrative tools. I thought this would remove my boot loader, but it didn't, I still have GRUB. I think I basically just gave myself write permissions to the system drive, which Windows needed to install the language pack.

A few days ago I installed a MS Office 2010 language pack, and suddenly a lot of my programs icons just resetted Even though they don't have anything to do with Office 2010. Is that possible?

Some programs that did change can be seen in the attachments.

All the Office programs changed their icon too.

Okay, I did a quick Google and came up with this tutorial. I tried both methods but it didn't work. All the icons have changed though, this is how they look now.

A:HELP PLS!!! Problem With Language Pack

Hello Roger, welcome to the Seven Forums.

The attached msinfo.txt file shows you have Windows 7 Home Premium. As Windows 7 Language Packs are a feature only included in Ultimate and Enterprise editions, you are not allowed to use them. If you have language packs installed, and I can see from the second screenshot of yours you have almost all of them, it means you have got them from unofficial sources.

There's a reason why for instance Ultimate edition costs more than Home Premium; you have to pay for the added features like language packs. For me, who have spent money to get Ultimate and those features, trying to get those features to Home Premium is piracy, and I am not willing to help or answer any questions in issues related to piracy.

Second thing is keyboard layout. Some non-Latin based keyboard layouts are a bit tricky to use. This posts shows how to use Korean keyboard layout.

i installed multiple language packs for my pc. my preference is Trad Chinese but since a little while ago some of the messages suddenly were displayed in Arabic. i tried to change the language settings to English and same thing happened. it doesnt help also to changing it back to Chinese. i wonder if someone has come across this also? what should i do? thanks.

what is displayed in Arabic:
- the login screen at startup when user is asked to input password. the cursor in the input box is even on the right. the wrong password messages and password hints are all in Arabic
- windows auto updater. while all the options and buttons are in the user chosen language as they are in explorer.exe, all the info concerning the new and installed patches are in Arabic
- some, small number of error messages

Hey everyone, thanks for reading this

I have this weird problem with my computer:

The OS is a XP SP3 English version, therefore to display Chinese etc. I need to install the language pack via Control Panel-->Regional and Language Options-->Languages tab---> and I check both of the options, then installed the packages after popping in the dvd. It showed files transferring complete, then restart.

The problem:
I can view web pages with Chinese now (where I couldn't before). I can also type in Office, MSN, etc. But the problem is that when I use a Chinese program installer, the characters appear to be just squares. In the task bar, if a Chines program is running, also squares. If I name folders Chinese, squares (more like a rectangle) appears. What may be the problem?

Any help is appreciated!

A:Language Pack Problem (system cannot display)

That is a problem with the installers. You would need to get English versions or use a machine that has the Chinese version of the operating system installed. The language pack does not support everything from another language.

You may be able to get the installers to display Chineses if you change the IME to Chinese for your system menus and options.

I have a problem with a laptop, from Thailand, that has a Windows Thai Language Pack on. The problem is that it is my friends laptop, who is Thai, but he wants it all to be in english.

The Thai Language Pack seems to change alot of the windows program names and folders into Thai, but he wants them to be English.

So, can i just remove it and it will go back to a normal windows, all in english?
Or, will it not work without the pack?

If it was my laptop i would just remove it and see what happens, but my friend has about 20 Gb of games on it, and about 60Gb music. So i really don't want to mess up his computer.

Also, if i download a English Language pack, would it overide the Thai one?

I installed Windows 8 Pro and installed an additional language(let's say it's B) pack, changed system display language to B, and system locale to B.

And I got infinite BSOD after installing some drivers(not related to language pack, just I made mistake installing old programs), so I 'refresh'ed the system.

Guess what, after the refresh, system display was set to English(united kingdom, which is default), AND system locale remained as language B.

This is the problematic part;
1.I CANNOT change system display language to B, it says it's unavailable.
2.The system regards the language pack is already installed because I can still use B as system locale.
3.I cannot reinstall or remove the language pack. LPKSETUP doesn't detect B.

SO i'm pretty much stuck, and I don't want to reinstall just to change the system display language.

Is there any solution to this(removing/reinstalling language pack)?

Microsoft 2 years ago discontinued the support for language pack support,
I was pointing there to change interface every-time I had to reinstall.
The PC Main Disk crashed, and over the pain to do the full install of everything,
I discovered that I was stuck with an Italian Office !

A:SP2 installation problem in Home Premium 32bit - Arabic language pack?

Is there anyone out there who can help me? I'm still struggling with the problem, and as Vista has been rather buggy for me lately I've started experimenting with Explorer alternatives. This has helped, amazingly, and quite a bit, but it's still only a stopgap measure. I need SP2, and the many fabled fixes it brings.

Still getting the same "due to a system error" message from my full boot. Should I try Safemode again, or is that just going to give me the same issue about the language pack? Does anyone know a way to get rid of one of those things?

Or should I just be waiting for the multi-language installation of SP2 in the hopes that that will work? Considering that I only have English listed as installed, though, that seems like a sad option. . .

If that system ran very long without SP3, it may be compromised . . I find the easiest remedy is a clean install followed immediately by upgradeing to SP3.

You must repeat this for all the language packs.
You can do this for everything in the update list.

I installed both the Asian and Hebrew language packs with no problem. However, I started getting legitimate popups up in Kanji characters. This is quite frustrating as I have no idea what it is saying. I was so frustrated that I uninstalled the language pack. (This never happened with the Hebrew pack) Uninstalling it did nothing to help this situation.

I got so aggravated I took every Asian font off the computer too.

If you have any ideas I could use them. Everytime Apple and some others send me an update it is all in characters and I do not know what button to push.

The easiest solution is to just install it, as long as is a Microsoft language pack.
Doing this wont have any adverse affect on how your pc runs.

The funny thing is about these popups is that even if you dont install the language packs, the pc still reads the pages correctly 9 times out of 10. (another of those things built into windows just to confuse people)

I recently got a computer with Windows 7 Professional (64, SP1) pre-installed. It's in Swedish, but I'd prefer English. After doing some research I gleaned that I cannot use Windows Update to get the job done, as that is only an option in other versions of Win7. So I tried Vistalizator. It seemed to do the job fine, but when it came time to change the language I was prompted that I needed 2 updates to Windows. I did so but the second one wasn't recognized/didn't take. I uninstalled it, did it again. Same thing. So I'm getting nowhere using Vistalizator.

Is there any other method where I can get an English MUI to run?

I appreciate any advice. Thank you.

You might not like this answer but I think it might be the only way solution.
Select the anytime upgrade and pay for Windows 7 Ultimate. Then you will be able to change the language by installing language packs.

I'm not even sure if the anytime upgrade offer still exists! I'm not getting any good links for it.

Hi! One of my friends has bought himself a notebook yesterday. It doesn't have any Windows Vista Installation DVDs, and he's got this problem:

The display language is Italian, and he'd like it to be English, as he does not speak Italian (he's Romanian, and so do I).

After some time of trying to find a way to change the display language, we've discovered where the menu should be, but it's not there. Just have a look over the screenshots. I've found the second one Googling, and the first one was taken by him. WHERE THE HELL IS THE MENU?!?

He's currently running SP1.

Thanks in advance!

This is also weird: my MacBook came with the OS DVD. Why wouldn't his Acer come with it as well?

A:Language Pack Troubles

thebog welcome to the forums.

What you and your friend need to do is change the display language (Multi User Interface - MUI). Unfortunately that is only really available on Ultimate and Enterprise editions of Vista, but there is a way around it. Start with reading here,

Display Language

for what is involved in making the changes then go here,

Download and Install Windows Vista MUI Language Packs on Vista Home Basic, Home Premium and Business ? Raymond.CC Blog

for a more detailed description on how to use Vistalizator.

As fas as the install DVD, that is sort of standard practice with just about every PC and laptop manufacturer out there. What they do is provide either a restore partition or the option to create recovery disks, and sometimes both, the last HP computer I worked had both. You may find that once you can understand what is on-screen, you may find the option to create recovery disks is available on that noetbook as well.

Any ideas anyone.


A:Install W7 Language pack .mlc

Hi Jimbo.

I found the following Article on Technet

To install a LIP from the LIP CD

Log on to the destination computer as an administrator or use an account with administrator privileges.

Insert the Windows 7 Language Interface Pack (LIP) CD.

Open Windows Explorer by right-clicking Start, and then selecting Explore. Navigate to the root of the directory in the Windows 7 LIP CD.

Double-click the .mlc file. The Setup program starts.

Select the LIP that you intend to install and follow the instructions provided by the application.

After the LIP language is installed, you can change the User Interface language by using the Regional and Language Options Control Panel. To open the Regional and Language Options Control Panel, click Start, type intl.cpl in the Start Search text box, and then press ENTER.

For more information about language interface packs, and other multilingual resources, see Understanding Multilingual Deployments.

To install a LIP from the Microsoft Web site

OEMs and system builders must acquire LIPs from the partner Web site.

Log on to the destination computer as an administrator or use an account with administrator privileges.

Download the appropriate LIP.

Navigate to the directory that contains the LIP that you intend to install - for example, the \hi-IN directory - and then double-click Lip.mlc. The Install or Uninstall Display Languages window appears.

Follow the instructions provided by the Install or Uninstall Display Languages application to complete the installation.

After the LIP language is installed, you can change the User Interface language by using the Regional and Language Options Control Panel.

It looks like you can just Double-click the .mlc file

Hi list !!!

Is there different versions of Windows 7 for different language, or there is a base version, and you can change the language by installing Language Pack of your choice.

Say for example, i want Turkish version of Windows 7; for that do I need to buy Turkish version of Windows 7 or English version with Turkish Language pack will be equivalent ??

A:Yet Another Language Pack Question


The language pack will be essentially equivalent, but only Windows 7 Ultimate can download them.

If you want a lower version, like Home or Professional, you will need to buy the Turkish version.

Heyall, I haven't posted here for a while. So here I come with one simple question and I hope someone will tell me if I can do what I want to do.

I want to make Windows 7 easier for my father on his laptop, but I use it as well and there's no way I am going to get used to Bulgarian. We use different user accounts, so can I install the language pack and configure it only on his account so that mine can stay in English?

A:Language Pack only on ONE user

I believe that is default functionality:

When you install a language pack, you can change the interface language of Windows 7 to the language that you select.

Language packs also let multiple users who share a computer select distinct display languages. For example, one user can select to see the dialog boxes, menus, and other text in Japanese, whereas another user can select to see the same content in French.

Windows 7 language packs are available for computers that are running Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Enterprise

Try installing the language pack under his user.

I am still having a problem with my Japanese language pack - I am able to switch from EN icon to JP icon and actually see the language bar can't do so with a mouse click as I have been doing for years now but must use Alt Shift on the keyboard -- But -- the scroll menus do not open When I click on one of the icons on the language bar Corrupt Language Pack it flickers - but will not open as it should Any suggestions as to how to reinstall this Japanese IME Of course it is no longer an option under quot Updates quot since technically it has already been installed Attachments Scan Results Snippet of IME directory in C partition - Is there anything here that would indicate a corrupt file that could be manually repaired Support Info Just ran sfc scannow in an admin command prompt -- and Amongst the mountains of text found in the log file a quot find quot of quot language quot appears to indicate an attempt Corrupt Language Pack to repair this language pack That concurs with my original suspicion that the Japanese language pack is defective Of course I could have tested this by installing another language pack and testing it I did not Why Well I don't need the Chinese now and didn't want to increase the number of variables I need to deal with in solving this problem - Corrupt Language Pack and - the language pack quot controller quot I assume there is such a thing might itself be corrupt My thought I would like to reinstall the Japanese language pack I tried doing so by downloading and installing what I thought was a Japanese IME but turned out to convert my entire system to Japanese - definitely NOT what I wanted From googling the world I have learned that many others have encountered the same problem So I guess it's nice to know that I'm not all alone here

A:Corrupt Language Pack

First, I have to say your post is one of the most confusing I have seen .

A language pack converts Windows to selected language by changing its display language. If you install and enable a Japanese language pack, then your Windows is completely Japanese. I for instance really need four languages, so I have installed Finnish, Swedish and German language packs on my English Windows 7 on each and every computer I have.

After installing these language packs I simply create new user accounts for each language (an enabled and applied language pack only converts the display language of the user account it was applied for, not whole computer's language), resulting a scenario like this:
(Click to enlarge)

Depending which language I need, I can login to respective user account. My normal and Admin accounts in English, other accounts in Finnish, Swedish and German.

To change a display language you need first to download a language pack in your chosen language, log in to user account you want to change display language and then from Regional and language properties > Keyboards and languages select correct language:
(Installed languages in this example are English, German / Deutsch, Finnish / Suomi and Swedish / Svenska)

After relogin the user account in question has completely changed to chosen language. Dialogs, menus, help, IE and so on.

(Tutorial: Display Language - Change)

Input language is the keyboard layout you want to use. It has nothing to do with language packs and does not need an installed language pack; to change your keyboard layout (input language) you do not need to download anything. Simply open the language properties and add / enable / disable wanted input methods (languages).

Input languages are changed / enabled / disabled from the Regional and language properties > Keyboards and languages > Change keyboards:

(Tutorial: Keyboard Input Language - Add or Remove)

Changing the Display Language does not change the Input Language and vice versa. Again using my computer as an example:

Originally this laptop had an English Windows 7 Enterprise installed, with English (UK) as Input Language (= keyboard layout). I created additional user accounts to be used in Finnish, Swedish and German.

After downloading language packs I logged in to newly created Finnish account and changed its Display Language to Finnish. After relogin the Display Language of that account was changed to Finnish but the keyboard layout (Input Language) was still English (UK) because changing the Display Language does not automatically change the Input Language. That change I made (it must be made) separately.

I repeated the same procedure with Swedish and German user accounts resulting a laptop with user accounts in four different languages, each using its respectively Input Language.

Read the tutorials I linked above. Your Japanese IME is an Input Language, in other words Keyboard Layout, not a Display language and should work after first disabling / removing it, rebooting and enabling / adding it again.

Do not change the Display Language if you do not want to change your complete Windows to an other language. You are mixing these two totally different things, display language and input language.

Once more:Display Language = the language Windows and all its dialogs and menus are presented. A language pack is needed in order to change the display language
Input Language = keyboard layout in selected language. No additional downloads, language packs or something else are needed to change the layout

is there a way to install win 7 pro x32 ,then install sp1 and all updates and the thing i need to know is there a way to put language pack in..i repeat i have professional edition and want all updates and croatian language pack..thanks to all

A:win 7 pro x32 about language pack installation ...

You need either Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Enterprise to be able to install the extra language packs via Windows Updates.

The packs available are listed here: Download languages for Windows - Microsoft Windows

Your best bet would be to use Windows Anytime Upgrade from Professional to Ultimate. All you do is go online, buy a Product Key then run Windows Anytime Upgrade.

You'll be asked to enter your new Product Key, which is then verified. Once verification has taken place the upgrade will begin, which takes from as little as 10 minutes, depending on how many updates have to be downloaded and installed first.

Hi there
Download the SWEDISH LIP from here

Download languages for Windows - Microsoft Windows

Even includes obscure languages like WELSH etc.

I used the Icelandic one -- works a treat on my systems. In some cases you need to install over a base ENGLISH version of W7 but I think for Swedish installing over ANY installed language version of W7 base should be OK -- the list contains the requirements.

Once you've installed go to control panel regional settings and you can get around 99% of the Interface switched to the alternate language(s). You can install as many as you like and note the Logon screen if you set the administrator options in control panel will also be presented in your chosen language.

You need to have W7 PRO or higher unfortunately -- it won't work with HOME PREMIUM -- which IMO is daft since corporates often use ENGLISH but home users are much more likely to want W7 in their native language.

You should find no trouble installing on W7 Enterprise whether X-86 or the 64 bit version.

You can switch back to the original English any time after install too.

They are an additional install that has to change over EVERY word from x language to the y language installed. I don't know if you can switch back and forth or not, but it is a large file.

You have to install it as an update. I have not done this, so I don't know how it works after that.
