LIP's for Vista Basic english US

Q: LIP's for Vista Basic english US

OK, I've been doing some research since there are many clients coming to me wanting to have the ability to take their laptops to Mexico and have their family understand the words they are seeing on the computer. MS neutered Vista Basic so you can't just install a language pack and go for it. FINE.

But they have this other conflicting info saying you CAN change much of the system interface such as dialogue boxes to a different language.

So, I check it out. This applies to vista basic english installation. I can install LIP's in the following languages:

This package applies to the following languages:
• Afrikaans*
• Albanian*
• Armenian*
• Assamese*
• Azeri*
• Bengali (India)*
• Bosnian - Cyrillic*
• Bosnian - Latin*
• Gujarati*
• Filipino*
• Hindi*
• Icelandic
• Indonesian*
• Inuktitut
• Icelandic
• Indonesian*
• IsiXhosa*
• IsiZulu*
• Georgian*
• Kazakh*
• Luxembourgish
• Macedonian*
• Malay (Malaysia)*
• Malay (Brunei Darussalam)
• Marathi*
• Oriya*
• Serbian - Cyrillic*
• Sesotho sa Leboa*
• Tamil*
• Uzbek - Latin*
• Vietnamese*
• Welsh
ARE THEY SERIOUS? IS THIS A JOKE? because I am not laughing. I mean, what the hello is marathi? Tamil? IsiXhosa? I can install those, but not friggen Spanish? C'mon!!!! WT...??? gives?

This has to be a joke.

All that aside, does anyone have any advice on what I CAN do to help out those with Vista Basic and very little comprehension of english? Is there anything I can do for them that won't cost $199 for an upgrade to ultimate?

Installing English Vista over Korean I bought my laptop while I was working in South Korea; it came with Windows Vista Home Premium Korean edition pre-installed ( I have the disks). My Korean is not good enough to use comfortably, so I want to change it to English. As far as I can tell, I'll need to install the English Vista Home Premium ... Am I right?

I just got my new computer which has vista ultimate on it, I live in Mexico so the computer dialog is in Spanish, which I do not speak or read. At startup I answered all the questions clicking on English, once I got the computer going everything still comes up in Spanish except the names of the software programs. I cannot read anything about Vista or anything important on running this machine because it is in Spanish. How do I get this computer to startup and be completely English. I called HP but they weren't much help. What really gets me is that recently we bought a mac at startup it asked which language you wanted and that was the end of it you got what your choice was. One would think with microsofts expertise that they could do something similiar. Help help help.......and I hope it is easy to do.

Hello everyone, my first post here, i hope you can help.

My girlfriend has a new-ish laptop that came with Windows 7 Home Premium, and recently it had some issues. The issues have got worse and it turned out to be a stuffed drive, out of warranty, its basically stuffed.

I got a new HD and installed it, but when i went digging for the Windows disc that came with it i couldn't find it. Some googling tells me that this laptop does not come with any install discs (seriously, wtf?!) only some manuals and other paper work. There was however a recovery drive which i assume was a partition for re-installing windows and the rest of the included bloat ware.

Without a Windows 7 disc we could not install it on the new drive, so i downloaded an ISO on my machine and created a DVD, but the idiot i am, i downloaded it in the wrong language. I didn't notice the NL at the end of the file, which im assuming is Netherlands? Please excuse my language ignorance if im wrong.

I know downloading software is wrong, i dont need a lecture. I'm just not going to pay for another copy of Windows 7 because the scumbag laptop manufacturer wont even include a bloody install disc!

I have the product key of course, luckily the sticker on the bottom of the laptop was still visible.

Sure i could download another ISO, but being bad once is enough for me and our net is pretty slow, it took 4 days to DL this copy!

Hope someone can help!

A:Windows Installation Not in English, Can I Force It To Run In English?

I would download or borrow an English language Windows Seven DVD. Install it with no product key. You have 30 days to evaluate. Also you can extend that period several times. It's not illegal. See this tutorial:
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...-120-days.html

By that time you should be able to determine you have everything working and can then find out what you need to do for activation to keep it permanently.

I live in belgium and naturally buy my hardware here. I don't, however, like to install my sotware in dutch as it's much easier to solve problems in english.
This means that I install an english windows 7 on my pc and I install english versions of software as wel.

Now, even though I do all this, I still get text in dutch both from the system and from software. For example, some error messages from windows itself are in dutch.

Can anyone explain to me how this is possible and how i can change it? It must have something to do with the hardware but when I install software in english, I expect it to be in English!

A:English installs on an english windows still in dutch

I don't think the hardware has anything to do with it. Question is whether you truely installed an English version. If that was an OEM installed Dutch Win7, then it is not part of the 5 language version (En, Fr, Ger, Span, JPN). You need a 5 language version installation disk to get full English. How did you actually install the "English version" - from what source.

I have had transparency working twice with an aero msstyle file and/or a theme file but each time I needed to install WindowBlinds for it to work. After which I uninstalled WB and enjoyed the aero experience. So WindowBlinds automatically turns it on somehow. Due to their trial limitations I can't keep installing every time to kick start aero and it's a bit extravagant to pay for especially when my computer is capable without it. I need to know how to turn it on manually.

I've patched the system 32 files. Set the windows color scheme to Windows Vista Standard. I've enabled desktop composition via setting for best appearance. In the regedit DMV key I've set composition to 1, compostion policy to 2 and colorizationopaqueblend to 0, 1 and 2 (opinions on which # works differs so I tried all three) and it's still not worky. Does anyone know anything else that controls transparency? Of course Microsoft has generously disabled the transparency control in "Window Color and Appearance" on Vista Home Basic so that is not an option.

I would just use VistaGlazz but have never been able to run it on this computer. It crashes every time I open it.

Just bought a new desktop from Dell that was pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Basic, later wanted to upgrade to Windows Vista Business, so I bought the Windows Vista Business separately from the retail store and try to install it.

But halfway during the upgrade installation, an error message popped up and says that some files are corrupted or something, with error 0X80070017, and the upgrade was cancelled.

I have tried many times which included doing a clean install or installing during boot time, all lead to the same error.

The copy of Windows Vista that I bought was a genuine copy and the hardware should meet all requirements, it's a Pentium D 915, 1 GB RAM with 160GB HDD.

I went from 7 to vista and I kind of like 7 better,, why? First of all the preview options from the tasbar and the way the internet was set up on the notification bar was easy, here on vista a whole window comes up when in 7 it popped up right on the notification area. Little things , i know but yeah. I just installed it, its freshh, and it didnt come with some drivers, so i had to download the drivers from another domputer, put it on a cd and install it that way, now i am getting the rest of the drivers from this laptop now that i have the drivers. Vista looks better in a way though. Still messing around with it. so is there a way I can get those option from 7 on here to vista? thank you. And for some reason the scroll doesnt work on vista. Im sure ill figure it out. Cheers One other thing, on win7 it had a convinient "connect to projector" shortcut I found out how to do it without the shortcut, but is there a way to get that shortcut? Hopefully it comes with the updates.

Hi,

I've tried 7 as you state, it is easy to use & full of bells & whistles.

Now as for the shortcut issue you mention, it is hardly worth anything without the back resource to support it! So what software did it initiate or invoke? As this maybe the key to your satisfaction!

there are two separate paths. If there isn't any data on the computer you can boot from dvd and format and re-install.

If there is data needed can you safe boot with command promt. at the prompt you can activate the built in admin by typing net user administrator /active

that account shouldn't have a password attached. if it does you probably should start thinking about a virus.

Hi, welcome to BC!
It is probably asking you for an administrator password reset disk. Was you account the administrator? if not then boot into safe mode and log on as the System Administrator and remove the password on your other account.
