You can still change the keyboard to write in Arabic. Whether or not you can read Arabic, I dunno But the OS isn't available in Arabic per this statement

*Note: If you used the Hindi or Arabic language versions of the Beta, thank you for helping us test those languages. Because the RC is not available in Hindi or Arabic, we encourage you to either install Windows 7 RC in another language or reinstall a prior version of Windows before the Beta expires on August 1, 2009.

Just restored a clients machine to a previous restore point, cleaned everything up (virus/malware wise).Only problem I'm having now is some of the elements within windows are displayed in a different language.. I'm guessing Arabic. Already checked Regional/Lang settings, checked HKLM\Sys\CS001\Cont\Nls\Language tooOnly certain items in the CP and various dialogs are in Arabic:How do you fix this??? I believe its keeping me from installing SP3 on this machine as well...

Hi kisk:

My gut reaction was 'lol' at that screen shot; I've never actually seen the Arabic language pack in use. This was from a malware infection?? But let's address your problem, shall we?

First, let's start off by going into detail about your 'Regional and Language Options'. Was the regional options set to English? In the 'Language' tab, is the 'Text Services and Input Languages' option set to English as well?

Also, are you able to use a Win XP installation CD to repair Windows? If I'm not mistaken, there is an option to select your default Regional Settings there as well. Post back here with more details! Good luck. =)

3. continued to get popups
4. deleted directories with same name "tool bars and extensions"
5. continued to get popups
6. downloaded Malwarebytes and found several pups and quarantined  all.
7. rebooted. 
8. No longer can i log in, language seems to be Arabic.
9. I tried to refresh but would not work- it made me log in. this is where i noticed that the language was set to ARABIC 2. 
The computer boots fine, I cant read the language and my password does not work. 
Would a restore to a restore point reset the langauge? Is there any way to recover this PC?

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. . .

After selecting United States again.... nothing had changed.

A:Vista Language packs in W7 - possible or not

Hi Jimbo,

Seven does have language packs. If you have been doing updates it should be included. I hid the language packs because I don't use them, albeit I just checked on the hidden updates and they are there. But, there is not a language pack included for Iceland. Not sure but don't they speak a form of Danish because there is a Danish language pack. Not sure this will help, but here's hoping.

I am having an issue with language bar. it keeps disappearing from my taskbar, even though right click>Toolbars>Language toolbar is checked.

Sometimes it is there, and sometimes it's missing.

The odd detail is the following: when I start something that requires admin rights/confirmation and screen gets dark as usual and small table appears asking for confirmation. just on the top of the taskbar there's language bar(extended, as if it is in the "floating on the desktop" mode.)

I attach the pics. first when the taskbar is locked, the second when it is unlocked

thanks in advance.

Question-- Mac OSX has a translation widget installed by default. Does Vista contain anything similar-- an application or widget that translates human languages (i.e. from Russian to English)?

I presume that you want to translate a document or something similar. So no, there isn't such a tool built into Vista. But, there are plenty of translators available out there that you can install on it (or do it with one of the sites on the web).

Hope someone can give me some advice.

I bought my laptop in Korea when I was working there and it came pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Premium Korean edition. I don't speak korean very well, so that's not very useful.

Is it just a case of installing an English version of Vista HP (upgrade version)? I don't want to be told I have to install in the same language and waste my money.


A:Re-installing Vista in different language

Well, you could do that, but I think a cheaper way would be to follow the directions here:


The display language is the language that Windows uses in wizards, dialog boxes, menus, Help and Support topics, and other items in the user interface. Some display languages are installed by default, and others require you to install additional language files. When you change the display language, it is changed for your user account and is not changed on the Welcome screen. If you want to set the display language for multiple users or the Welcome screen, see Apply regional and language settings to reserved accounts.


Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region, and then clicking Regional and Language Options.

Click the Keyboards and Languages tab.

Under Display language, choose a language from the list, and then click OK.
NoteIf you don't see the list of display languages, you need to install additional language files first. For more information, see Install a display language.

When you change the display language, the text in menus and dialog boxes for some programs might not be in the language that you want. This happens because the program might not support Unicode. For more information about changing the text in menus and dialog boxes for programs that do not support Unicode, see Change the system locale.

Or if you don't have an LIP as the instructions state you can change the language like so:


You can change the language Windows uses to display text in wizards, dialog boxes, menus, and other items in the user interface. Some display languages are installed by default; others require you to install additional language files.

Before you can install a display language, you need access to the language files. These files can be on your computer, on a computer on your network, or on your Windows DVD; or they can be downloaded from the web. For more information, see How do I get additional language files?

To install a Language Interface Pack (LIP), double-click the file to open the setup program. To install a Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI), follow these steps:


Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region, and then clicking Regional and Language Options.

Click the Keyboards and Languages tab.

Under Display Language, click Install/uninstall languages, and then follow the steps. Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
NoteThe Display language section will only be visible if you have already installed a LIP or if your edition of Windows supports MUI. MUI packs are only available in Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows Vista Enterprise.

If you don't even have English installed as a choice in that, an LIP should be available. I'd contact Microsoft support about that one if you can't find it, as it wasn't in the list I found...

I just bought a Sony Vaio, CR VGN-CR21LH laptop with vista home basic installed. I bought it in Korea, hence it is all in Korean.

My question basically is, if I install Vista ultimate in english, will everything (programs etc) automatically become English?

Also, how do I find out what BIOS I have & whether it supports slic (v2)?

Here is a Microsoft link that (sort of) explains what the difference is between LIP and MUI.
Windows Vista Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI).*
Windows Vista Language Interface Pack (LIP).*

If you have Vista Ultimate - you will be in luck - if you have - Windows Vista Ultimate -
MUI is also available for Vista Enterprise -
I have never installed either of these - so not sure what LIP, would be lacking.

I have heard people say that it is possible, and others says that its only possible in premium and ultimate.

I will need to change the language of my vista basic from English to chines when I get it, and I find it hard to believe that Microsoft would be so stupid and make this impossible, because if it is, I will just buy a pirated Chinese version and never pay for anything that Microsoft makes again.

All though, according to this link:

it should be possible. It says so black on white (or at least gray on blue) "Applies to all editions of Windows Vista.", right under the big blue "Change the display language".

I was wondering if anyone have tried to change the display language with basic ?

I have purchased an Acer Pc in Spain with Vista Home Premium. The salesman assured me that I would be able to see all of my programs in English after the shop ran a conversion programme. This has not worked at all. The program did convert most of my windows to English but in the process lost all of the programmes that were preinstalled by Acer. I restored these using a factory restore disc but this converted my Windows back to Spanish. My question is this "Is it possible to obtain a factory restore disc that will install everything in English". I have contacted Acer support in England and they have referred me to Acer Spain. Suprisingly when I contacted Acer Spain they referred me to Acer England.

I got an empty box and planning to install vista ultimate (English version), as well as the Chinese language pack. Which service pack should I install? the "Five language standalone" or the "All language standalone"?

Thanks a lot

A:Vista Ultimate language pack

Both types service packs are proper for you.Because "five language" has lower volume the better to install five language version.

Today I installed the Russian language pack on my English Vista Ultimate.
Everything looks just fine, except one problem...
I cant click properties on the right click menu NOWHERE!
When I click it, nothing happening...

Its the same everywhere, My Computer (the drives drop menu)
and folders, no matter where they are located (desktop or so on)
when I click "properties" nothing happening...

It looks like a bug... any ideas on how to fix it? (I tried restart....)

OMG my system restore doesn't work, i received a weird error that obviously was translated
in a weird way as I cant see any logic in it...
I also went to the language setting, but they wont work (double click = nothing)

Does anyone know how I could hide the various, non-deleteable foreign language fonts so they won't show up in my drop-down fonts lists? scrolling through all these useless fonts takes a lot of time, and I'll never use them. I tried to delete them, even when logged in as owner and administrator, taking ownership, etc., but have found no solution myself after trying all the solutions that were posted on this forum. HELP!!!

A:Hiding Foreign Language Fonts in Vista

1. Open Fonts by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Fonts.
2. Click the font that you want to uninstall. To select more than one font at a time, press and hold down CTRL while you click each font.
3. On the File menu, click Delete.
If you don’t see the File menu, press ALT.

Under Msconfig does ctfmon show up in your startup's, you need it for the language bar to work.

I have two simple questions, but I cannot find definitive answers .

>I have windows vista business 64bit (language: Dutch)
>I want windows 7 professional 64bit (language: English)

I am going to use upgrade media to upgrade vista to 7.

1. Can I change the language from Dutch to English if I do a custom installation? Answered: yes

2. Is it a 100% clean installation if I do a custom installation and format during this procedure? Answered: read thread

Ad 1
If you do a custom install, formatting the drives, the language difference between vista and 7 is not a technical obstacle. So it comes down to licensing: does Microsoft accept this?

Ad 2
I do not want to use any 'registry workarounds'. But since people are using them, I'm wondering if a custom installation (with formatting during this process) indeed is a fully clean installation. The different tutorials are very confusing on this matter.

A:Upgrade dvd: vista to 7 in different language using custom install

You can inplace upgrade or Clean install.

If you want a clean installation:
Boot from the Windows 7 Upgrade disc, and at the install screen Choose "Custom" Installation.

Once you get to the install screen, you can format the drive Vista is on, delete and create new partitions .. however you desire to do it.

This is considered an Upgrade Install, even if you wipe the drive before installing, because you have an existing Windows installation when you booted from the Win7 disc.

My Notebook comes from the U.S. with Vista Ultimate. Now I want to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate here in Europe.

I heard that an in-place upgrade to Windows 7 is only possible within the same language (e.g. EN-US). Now I worry that I'll buy the wrong Win 7 version.

I know that my current Vista Ultimate is English, but how to find out which one (could be British as well)? Ist there a native OS language at all besides the language I set in the "regional and language options" in the control panel?

And is this important at all? As far as I know Windows 7 Ultimate supports 35 languages, so does it matter at all as long as I accept to install Win 7 in the same language like my Vista is?

Sorry, maybe I'm a bit confused *ggg*. Thanks so much for any enlightements!

regards, Wolfgang

A:Upgrade Vista Ultimate -> Windows 7: OS Language

Hi Drachenstein, welcome to the Seven Forums.

If you want to do an in-place upgrade, you have to have exactly the same language version. Info about the pre-installed OEM version with activation key can normally be found in the sticker in the bottom of the laptop.

If you ordered your laptop from the USA, the OEM Windows Vista most certainly is English. So for in-place upgrade you need an English Win7. To my knowledge Windows 7 is available only in one universal English version; no EN-US or EN-UK versions exists.

I have a form where two languages be entered at the same time, I have got the words and text entered in english and arabic , but when it comes to numbers and dates , it just stays as english . I tried through the control panel and change the neccassary but still the numbers stays english. If I completely in the control panel changed to arabic, all the english date and numbers are in arabic.

Is there a way that when pressing the ALT SHIFT the numerical also change to arabic ( text is fine in arabic ).

A:Arabic numbers

First, what program are you using?

it happens when you dont have an arabic font installed and selected as your text style. For example, if your default font is Times and you switch to arabic keyboard, it will let you type arabic but won't type the arabic numerals.

if you are typing in word, try to change over to an arabic font (not Adobe Arabic).

P.S. you will be able to type english numbers when you switch the keyboard to english and your font is an arabic font.

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)?

Hello darknight99 and welcome to Seven Forums.

My first guess would be your computer picked up some malware. Update and run a full scan with your resident antivirus and antispyware. Then run a couple of on-demand scanners (all free) like Malwarebytes, HitmanPro, SuperAntispyware, Comodo Cleaning Essentials, etc. On-demand scanners offer another layer of security because there's no such thing as an antimalware product that's 100% effective 100% of the time. If there was such a thing we'd all be using it.

I looked up the IP address showing in your screen shot. It comes back to Pakistan Telecommunication Company LTD in Punjab. Do you have any connection with that company like are they your internet provider?
