Windows 7 64 Chinese Language Pack

Q: Windows 7 64 Chinese Language Pack

I want to install the Chinese Language pack so I can see the Login screen in Chinese saying ?? instead of
Welcome in English

And please don't tell me to go into Windows Update to look for it there because I don't have that option see?

Also please don't tell me to look in Keyboard and Language, here is a screen shot of why I can't.

I have looked for months on different websites for a Chinese Language pack, actually it's almost been a year to be honest.
All I want is a Alternative download..

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.

Hi, i'm using Windows 7 home premium SP1. I can't seem to install any language packs, especially chinese, which is pretty important to me, in the windows update page. Any tips on how to go about? Thanks!

Yes, you will need to upgrade/download Windows 7 ultimate to get language packs. Home Premium only comes with 1 language pack. You can get Home Pre. in English or Chinese when you purchase it, but you can't change it later.

Since you could read chinese characters now, you can use Google Pinyin Installer instead. You can type chinese with it using pinyin. Supports both simplified and traditional characters.

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,

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.

I have a PC with Windows 8.1 single language pack(OEM DVD) and I need to get a new language pack.

But since the OS being single language pack, I am not able to download another language pack,

and so I thought I would get a 8.1 Pro or a normal NOT single language pack and do an upgrade.
(a wee bit sideways though )

So here is the Q.

If I get myself a 8.1 pro(non-single language), will I be able to upgrade my OS to a normal 8.1 pro?

Need to be typing in both Korean and English but I'm stuck with only English...

A:Windows 8.1 single language pack upgrade

You should be able to upgrade if you have bought the 8.1 Pro key. I've not tried it as I never had single language but MS says you can.

Can I add features to my Single Language edition of Windows?Yes. If you bought the Windows 8.1 Pro Pack or Windows 8 Pro Pack, you should be able to install it and activate Windows successfully.

Hi, I am looking to buy a laptop here in Germany where I live, but as an 'auslander' (i.e foreigner), my native language is English, so I'm wondering if its possible to change the user language to English on the low-end laptops equipped with 'Windows 8.1 with Bing.'

From what I have read online, there are supposedly no handicaps or limitations for the end user for the Bing-version Windows, however, I have noted from this article that the "About Windows" screen cap states something to the effect of it being a 'single language.'

Does this mean that I cannot switch to everything being in English with this version of Win 8.1, or is it still possible to add a language pack?

Thank you!

A:Adding Language Pack to 'Windows 8.1 with Bing'

Hi Gb33, welcome to the Eight Forums.

Myself an ex-pat living in Germany I know how important but sometimes difficult it is to find a computer here with pre-installed OS in any other language than German. Luckily Windows 8 made this a bit easier due language packs being available in all editions except single language edition.

Windows 8.1 with Bing is available in four different versions. One of them, Windows 8.1 with Bing China we can forget . Remains Windows 8.1 with Bing Single Language, Win 8.1 with Bing N and normal Windows 8.1 with Bing. You can use language packs (change display language from German to any language) in both N and normal versions, the Single Language can only be used in its original language.

Short: ask the store, check what version of Windows 8.1 with Bing the laptop has. Version N comes without Windows Media Player and other media features but these can be easily added by yourself with no cost (Download Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 8.1 from Official Microsoft Download Center). You can use language packs in version N to change your display language. Windows 8.1 with Bing normal version has all media features and can also use language packs.

Be careful, check that you will not get a German Single Language version.

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?

Peruse the link below to see if it provides any useful information.

Microsoft has no publicly available information for error code 800736B3.
Other threads in Answers forums very strongly suggest that error code 800736B3 is a symptom of system corruption/damage, most often caused by, e.g., one or more Norton realtime-protection processes, an infection, and/or injudicious use of "Registry cleaners" (e.g., Registry Mechanic; System Mechanic; RegCure; Advanced SystemCare; AVG PC TuneUp; PCTools Optimiser; CCleaner).

Well I have an exe that I run with Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 language set to Chinese PRC and I it runs perfectly, displays all strings etc. But when I run it with English as my language there's missing strings and some other stuff. So what I want to know is if I can make an interpreter or launcher, or just edit the exe in some way so it thinks I've got language set to Chinese without actually having to set it to Chinese.

I wasn't sure where to post so sorry if this is the wrong section.

All help is greatly appreciated.

I have an English operating system (XP) and have been trying to install Chinese language on it in addition to the English.

Done the usual stuff, tried installing East Asian language pack but my disc has a huge scratch so I have been trawling the internet for all of the individual files (e.g. xjis.nls, VGAFIX.FO_, EGA80850.FO_ etc) I then did the install one file at a time.

The Language bar now has Chinese as an option and to all intents and purposes it looks as though Chinese should be working but no. On internet pages I still get squares and when I switch from "EN" to "CH" on the language bar I still cannot input in Chinese.

Anyone have any ideas? Help is much appreciated.

Hey guys,

I've done some searching but couldn't find an answer.

I have a very strange thing happening on my machine: Win7 Home Premium x64

Normally, there are 2 languages available in my "Region and Language" setting in Control Panel: English US and Hebrew.

Once in a while (lately it's been happening almost every day!) the Chinese (Traditional, Taiwan) locale is added to the list of available languages in the language bar. It does *not* appear in the available keyboards in "Region and Language", it appears only in the Language Bar.

When I press Alt-LeftShift to change language, I can see EN, HE and CH which is really annoying.

The only way to remove it is to restart the machine, but it comes back quite quickly.

What on earth can be causing this?
Anyone has any idea?

Thanks for any help or pointer,

HI, I visited a chinese website and downloaded the Chinese Language program. Now Excel, PowerPoint and Word opens with a message.
"Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft XP Professional."
Then "the feature you are trying to use is on a CD Rom or other removable disc tht is not available. Insert the XP Professional disc and click ok."

I do this and it oesn't help. I click on cancel and get the following message.

"Error 1706 cannot find the required files etc."

I click OK and the MS Office program then opens.

If I click cancel as soon as the first message appears, the program will open.

I cannot remove the chinese language program. I cannot find it in add/remove programs.

This is my business computer. Please help.

Hi, my girldfriend has a machine with Windows Vista installed.
Up till now, we never had problems with switching languages -> NL to EN to CH (Microsoft IME pinyin system).
But recently, the language bar suddenly doesn't work properly anymore. When we switch to Chinese in Word, the icons disappeared from the chinese toolbar and weird code appears like some files are missing. And when we actually try to type something the application (in this case Word) freezes.

This is superfrustrating and I can't anywhere in the control panel to set the language settings to default. i read somewhere that people re-installed the languages but that didn't work.

Can someone help us from frustrating problem?

Have you downloaded and installed the Chinese Language Pack from Microsoft?

If you have, try the following steps:
1. Go to Control Panel.
2. Click "Change Display Language".
3. Go to "Administrative".
4. Click "Change System Locale"
5. Select "Chinese (Simplified, Singapore)" and click OK.
6. Reboot your system and see if it works.

I recently sent my computer in for a replacement hard drive. They installed Chinese input in my language bar (I assume because it's a Taiwanese company). I have tried removing it from Regional and Language Settings, but even when it's not listed in the keyboards section, it keeps showing up in the language bar. Sometimes when I restart it disappears, and sometimes it reappears in the keyboards and the language bar. It's really obnoxious.

Additionally, I often use Japanese input in the language bar (so I don't want to just remove the language bar entirely), but when it's in Half-Width Alphanumeric (English character) mode, it still uses a Japanese keyboard layout (as in ' becomes :, ) becomes (, etc.) . Is there any way to fix this? I never had this problem in XP.

Thank you in advance.

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.

Hi everyone, I have a question. I visited this car accessory site, using IE7. When I tried navigating through the site a small window popped up saying that I had to install a korean language pack in order to view the webpage correctly. So, I proceeded with the install and the installation proceeded to install files into my windows and system directories. When the install is done, I continue to navigate through the site, but notice there's no korean characters? It's a US based site as well.

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.

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

I recently purchased a used acer laptop, and it operates with a russian version of windows vista. I need to get an English language pack for vista home premium. Any idea where I can find this??

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.

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

When I got this computer, it didn't come with Genuine Office. So when i tried to download the japanese language IME, it said because of this, i can't download the language pack. Is there ANY way of getting it without having to shell out a couple hundred bucks for Genuine Office XP? Are their any other programs that enable me to read and type in Japanese?

Hi, i've recently bought a game that requires me to download the korean language pack files. I did this and when i go to install them from the control panel it asks me to insert my Windows XP home CD and load a file called "msmincho.ttc".
I bought my PC as part of a package and the Windows XP CD did not come with it. I only received a restore floppy disk from packard bell.
Is there any way of installing these files without the CD?

Right click on the language and then click Hide update.
You must repeat this for all the language packs.
You can do this for everything in the update list.
When you finish,to close the window press the X button not the cancel button.
The next time you check for updates they wont appear.

Hello jonaand &

Select the original installation file, MUISETUP.exe (Multilingual User Interface Pack), run it and deselect all the language packs you want to remove.

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.
