Install IE7 in a chosen language but not the OS language

    My XpPro bases on an Eglish (or to say: interntional) setup. I added a
    speech pack (coming with the OS CD) - in this case German.
    I am able to get German updates, the Defender (just as an example I got
    that moment) can be installed in German and runs without problems.

    But a German IE7 (donloaded) refuses the installtion via a message
    saying that, "this version does not match the language of the OS" (my
    translation by content).

    How can I install an IE7 in each chosen language?
    (I ask especially for, "each chosen", since the speech pack allows some
    more languages who are helpful in the company I work.)

    I remember to get speech packs (let me interprete it as packs just for
    it's shell) for the IE6 which work as described, bringing up the IE6
    with the pack's language, independend to the language of the OS (W98SE
    when I tested it some time ago).
    Installing the English IE7, I remember an option of changing the
    language (download or so) - but I may be wrong in that - and this option
    did not help.
    How can I get the IE7 in my preferred language?

    You can't. IE is an integral part of Windows so you can only install the
    IE7 language-version that matches that of Windows.

    In ohter words - there are "interntional" basis version of XP sold,
    speech packs too, but it is impossible to give the IE7 a (simple)
    front-end with a self chosen language?
