    Can I change display interface for Vista Business edition to English
    language?

    I thought MUI is provied for ONLY Vista Ultim ate but how about LIP?

    Where can I download LIP in English? And does it support for Vista Business?

  2. You can only change the language of Vista if you have Vista Ultimate
    or Enterprise.

    With Ultimate, you can download the language packs for free.
    Just open Windows Update, choose "view available updates",
    and check the language pack you want.

    Afterwards, from Control Panel (categories view), just choose
    "Change display language" under "Clock, Language and Region".
    Pick your language, log off, log on, and done.

    If you have another version of Vista other than those two,
    such as Windows Vista Home Premium or Business edition,
    you'll need to purchase a "full version" of Windows
    Vista in your desired language and perform a "clean install" or
    install it on a separate partition or drive (dual-boot).

    i've seen alot of posts on this matter...and all of them sound alike...at
    least the reply that is given. i don't think this is fair. every one of us
    has la microsoft vista licence, that somehow it is paid for. why do we need
    tobuy another version of vista that is in english or a version of vista
    enterprise or ultimate? if there is la "Language interface pack" why
    microsoft doesnt provide the english language to?
    i think that the problem could be solved with an update of windows that
    provides vista users the english language. and one more thing....once windows
    comes with a language choosen by some provider it shoul have english language
    as well.
    thnks!!!!!

    The ability to change the base OS installation language is a feature that is
    only included with Ultimate. If you purchase a different version of Vista,
    you should ensure that you purchase it in the proper language. Seems to me
    that it would be kind of silly to purchase Vista in a language that one
    cannot interpret.

    ok...this is true...i bought a laptop from spain....and they gave me vista in
    spanish...and because i saw on microsoft site that you can change the main
    language with la "lip" i asked "WHY DOESN'T MICROSOFT PROVIDE THE ENGLISH
    LANGUAGE TOO, LIKE OTHER LANGUAGES?"
