LIP for Telugu(India) language in Vista

Q: LIP for Telugu(India) language in Vista

Is there any information about when LIP for Telugu would be released in Vista. There are LIPs for other Indian languages but not for Telugu in Vista.


Preferred Solution: LIP for Telugu(India) language in Vista

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, jagansai, and welcome to the forums.

No battery available for Lenovo Ideapad 510 bought 14 months back. Service Centres in India and neither the Lenovo India Management have any clue or ETA about the battery availability or its pricing as confirmed by them. Few other Lenovo exclusive charging or rather black marketing with different high prices with various warranties for those batteries. They do not have any uniform pricing patterns which raises issues on its authenticity.
Feel cheated and deceived for putting trust in such a company leaving aside other brands like Dell and HP.

If you have the multi language installation disc, you can change the language during a reinstallation. If it is a Norwegian only, then you are stuck unless you can borrow an English installation disc and activeat with the key that is on the COA sticker (on the bottom of the laptop).

Hi I just bought a brand new gateway laptop from an opened box ( previously used and brought back). Once i had turned it on, the setting for the setup were in French. After seeing the possibility of changing it to another language i selected the United States one ( someone translated for me). After the setup was complete , everything was still in french.So by looking at my other computer i found the menus of where the language settings are. After selecting United States again.... nothing had changed.

Can someone please help?

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)?


A:Is There A Language Translator In Vista?

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).

my first post here.

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.

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: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Win...7512d1033.mspx


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 ... Read more

Hi all
Anyone know if it's possible to install the VISTA language packs into W7.

I need the Icelandic language for some testing but have only got the VISTA language pack
Anybody tried installing a VISTA lang. pack into W7. (In this case the requirement is for the x-86 version)


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.

A:Change Language in Vista?

mr wolf,

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.
"If you are using Windows Vista Enterprise, contact your system administrator for information about installing additional languages."

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

Is Vista the operating system & does it dictate the language for the computer?

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

I realise this is not totally focused to Vista but many thanks for any help that is given.

Hey all

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: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/help/2bac0e03-c331-48fc-8b7e-b66b8007512d1033.mspx

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.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I've tried searching the boards but can't find something like this....

I'm running 3 Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium Machines all with the same hardware configuration and the basic Vista software as well as AVG 8 Free as the antivirus program and haven't had any problems on any of them.

But a week ago one of the machines started having a weird problem when trying to send out email from Windows Mail - it would come up with an message saying CHARACTER SET CONFLICT and ask if I wanted to send the message as is or as Unicode. And alot of the email that was coming in from online forms (I have a site where people input suggestions, comments, etc) were now showing up as attachments instead of just in the body itself.

I looked around and found that I needed to make sure the language encoding was set correctly in Windows Mail.

But when I went into the settings for Windows Mail to look or change the encoding, anywhere in the program where you have an option to change from Western to Unicode, etc...all those drop down boxes are all blank - General, Spelling, Read...all blank, no options.

I opened up IE7 and looked under VIEW-ENCODING and I only see Left to Right or Right to Left...no language options at all.

In the process of me trying to figure this out, I uninstalled AVG and then installed the Vista SP1, but none of that made any differece. I've reset the IE options to the way they were when the computer was new and nothing. I've searched this forum ... Read more

I just let Vista install some updates, and I came back to be greeted by a blue screen, saying the error was "Windows did not find any installed, licensed language packs for the system default UI language" But the thing is that I put recommended updates, and it's already in English so why would Vista install extra language packs? Is there a way to fix this? It says to put in my Vista CD and select "repair", but I only have restore CDs and I don't see an option to "repair." I can't even get in through safe mode or last working configuration, it still says the error. I really don't wanna wipe the HDD clean, is there a way to fix this? Would getting a regular copy of Vista let me repair it?

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!

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 am living in Beijing, China at present and am about to buy a new Lenovo Ideapad Laptop. This comes with Windows Vista Home Premium Preinstalled (Chinese Version). I then intend to use the Free Windows 7 Upgrade Program to acquire Eglish language media

It is clear in Microsoft's documentation that this is not a supported upgrade path.

However, assuming I can get Lenovo to provide the English Language Windows 7 upgrade media, I should be able to do a clean install as per Doing a Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version and Paul Thurrot's Method.

In fact this would be the method for achieving any unsupported upgrade path, eg:
Vista 32 -> 7 64
Vista 64 -> 7 32
Chinese Vista -> English 7

Can anyone confirm that this is true, particularly for the language upgrade.



Further reading has led me to believe that this is definitely possible. Check out the bottom line of the chart image:

Upgrading Windows Vista from one language (e.g. English) to Windows 7 in a different language (e.g. French), requires a custom install.

I've also checked that Lenovo FREE Windows? 7 Upgrade Program asks you both which language and architecture your previous machine is running. So a white lie about having (wanting) the English 64bit Vista should net me the relevant Windows 7 upgrade disks

I'll post once more when I can confirm this on my new machine.

When I run lpksetup.exe /u it only comes back with one language, which is OK; however, scattered throughout the Vista file system there are dozens of other languages. For example, searching the drive for *ja-JP* locates 125 files+folders. And, as I said, this is but one of dozens of them. With dozens of languages, each creating 125 files+folders, that is a significant disk space footprint.

Are these really necessary? Is this standard Windows Vista Home Premium, or it debris resulting from having bought an HP?

If lpksetup.exe does not recognize them as MUI, how can I clear them out?

That is just one example, they are also in a lot of other places, too. All with date stamps before I got the PC, so they obviously came on the HP build. In addition to en-US, this it what is strewn throughout the file system:


Still, how do I get rid of them and recover the space? They're too entrenched in the OS to simply delete without damaging the OS, and I'm not yet prepared to do a clean install (which, of course, is the correct
solution). Any ideas?
