LIP for Windows Vista Business

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by Andrea Casini, Jul 17, 2007.

  1. Hi everyone,

    i run a Vista Business on my laptop, now i'd like to have it in english but
    i know MUIs will be available on Ultimate and Enterprise versions only. I
    would be happy with a LIP but i can't seem to find information where to find
    it in english and how to use it whatsoever.

    Can anyone help? I'm used to Windows in english, it would be nice to have it
    back without having to buy an english version. I know LIPs translate about
    80% of the interface but it's better than nothing.

    Hello,

    your Vista Business should be translated to English now. What is actually
    happening?

  7. Nothing at all. After asking for confirmation (btw in the confirmation
    windows it says ".... for Vista Ultimate) the disk crawls for a while and
    then nothing.

    I didn't try to reboot 'couse i had no time at work, but tomorrow i'll let
    you know if rebooting did the trick.

    Anyway after the confirmation i didn't see anything, no change, nothing.

  8. I'll try tomorrow, i just can tell you that i looked right there without
    finding nothing. I looked there because in Vista Ultimate it's there so i
    figured it could be there.

    Please keep an eye on this post because tomorrow i'll let you know. Thank
    you so far.

  10. Sorry to bother again but it didn't work.

    I was reading the help and it states that after you install the LIP you get
    in the control panel the ability to change language, but i still miss that
    part.

    I'm starting to think that the file i've downloaded is actually a MUI for
    Vista Ultimate and not a LIP that i can use with Vista Business.

    Do you think you can help me with that?

    Hello,

    I'm very sorry that it doesn't work.
    Have you found the option in Control Panel? Start -> Control Panel -> Clock,
    Language, and Region -> Change display language -> tab "Keyboards and
    Languages" ->
    Choose a display language ->.

  12. That's the big problem, i'm missing it. In that window i have the option to
    change the language of the keyboard.

    In my Windows Vista Ultimate i have at home, i have an option to change the
    display language right below the keyboard language option. In Vista Business
    i miss that, so i don't know how to change the display language.... any
    idea?!?

  14. I'll keep an eye on this post looking forward to read again from you. I'll be
    great if you'll find a way to make it work.

    I appreciate what you're doing. Thanks.

    I'm very sorry, but I couldn't find a way to install the language. I think
    they're said to be LIPs on that site (which is misleading), but they're
    MUIs, and so we're unable to install them on Vista Business.
    It's really a pity. Have a nice day, nevertheless.
