Can't log into Windows after installing Japanese Language Pack

Q: Can't log into Windows after installing Japanese Language Pack

I tried installing Japanese language support onto my Windows XP SP 3, but upon restarting (as it prompted me to do), I can't log into Windows. I select my user name, it says "Loading personal settings..." but then it dumps me back on to the log in screen, allowing me to re-click my name to the same effect.

I didn't have a password set, as it is my home computer. I just had it set to the log in screen since I built the machine, just for me to click on my user name.

I tried doing safe mode and logging into the administrator, but the same thing happens.

I tried reverting back to the "last good configuration" at the menu that comes after spamming F8, but that didn't change anything.

Debug dumps me at the same menu.

I have no idea what to do. Help, please!

EDIT: I have the Windows XP SP 2 disc, which is how I was able to log in. However, I don't have the password or registration key handy.

EDIT 2: I tried installing/fixing windows, but it didn't work (gave an error saying the signature was invalid, error 800b0100, setup log files should contain more information). I can get to the c:\ command line. From there, is there any way to initiate a system restore to previous settings, or change the registry to skip the log in screen?

Preferred Solution: Can't log into Windows after installing Japanese Language Pack

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.)

A:Changed Windows 10 OS Language to English from Japanese But Dell Updates Still in Japanese?

Where did you buy the computer?  Did it come with Japanese as default?  If you bought it in Japan its possible they installed the Japanese language only versions of the Dell programs and you would be stuck with them.  You could go to the support page for your computer and download the English versions if there are any.

After adding the Japanese Writing utility, I now have two taskbars. The second taskbar only shows programs that are running, not the start button, quicklaunch, clock, etc.

It first appeared toward the bottom of the desktop, and I could move it, like a floating toolbar. I moved it to the right side, and now it’s stuck there. If I attempt to move it or right click on it, the computer locks up. I have to CRTL ALT DEL and then restart.

Here's what I did:

I feel like I've done everything under the sun and still can't get the thing to install this language pack.
Any advice?

I am using a Windows XP system and I've had a problem with my ime files, my default language is chinese on my laptop, and I used to be able to use Japanese as well. But it stopped becoming available. I tried to copy and paste an IME folder from my friends computer, then realised she used it in Russian, and now some of my programs like my software for downloads, show text in Russian or just jibberish. When I go to add Japanese language file it does not show the IME option only shows an option for American or Chinese keyboard, none of which will even work/appear in the language bar as an option.
Will I need the Windows XP CD to fix this problem? Or is there a file I can download to have the Japanese IME option, so I can change between Chinese and Japanese keyboard.

Thank you so much for your time. I'm not sure what other information I can post about the problem that will be useful.
 

A:language options - japanese IME does not show, cannot add Japanese keyboard

You would need to change the Unicode to Japanese in the third tab in Regional and Language. Japanese doesn't figure in my list under the first tab either but if you change the Unicode and restart, you may find it on your XP CD and be able to add it in.

Good afternoon,

I'm looking for help, because i've been looking around for a solution for my problem (without it being re-install the windows) but still found nothing.

My problem begins with a notebook from a friend with a 1GB of ram. I've downloaded a windows 7 micro so i could install a lighter version of windows 7, so it would be faster.
1? Problem: My friend doesn't understand english very well, and windows 7 micro in portuguese are non-existent, and language pack adding is removed so i can't install it by windows update.
Solution: i've downloaded rtse7en, inserted a PT language pack, official from microsoft, and voil?, a windows 7 micro with PT.
2? Problem: Installed windows in english by default, works perfectly. Went to languages, PT is available, changed for PT, reboot, and everything seems perfect, in portuguese. And then starts the problems.
Went to the advanced system properties, so i could remove all graphic-excess, and it simply doesn't open. When clicked on, the mouse appears with the thinking circle for 1 or 2 seconds, and then returns to normal, and no window with the properties. In control panel most of the options also don't open, including the language options, so i can't return to english.
So, i'm trying to put PT working. I don't really want to re-install, because i'll need to turn it into PT anyway, so it'll probably give me the same problems with another install.

So, i'm open to suggestions, so shoot away, because i really need to put this working...... Read more

I'm on my work laptop and wanting to switch languages to English. I'm using Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit.

I know I can supposedly install a language pack via the Update Center. However, because of system restrictions, I don't have access to that. What I DO have access to is a place on my hard drive where I can install a downloaded language pack (again supposedly).

Is there an official Windows 7 language pack I can download? The ones I've found so far seem sketchy (from non-Microsoft websites) or for the beta version of Windows 7.

A:Installing Language Pack Issues

So after further research, I am 90% sure I already have the English language pack installed. However, system restrictions prevent me from switching to English. Under the usual "Keyboard and Languages" tab of "Regional and Language Options", the language section is simply not there at all.

Now I need to find a way to work around that. My office's IT support will not change it for me as local language laws prevent them from doing so.

Any tips?

Hello, I'm new to the 7forums and I need help.
I've been trying to fix my Windows for 3 days straight now and I'm not really progressing.

This is to help you understand what situation I'm in:
I've asked my dad to help me with something and he did a little extra which messed up my register and after working on that for about a day we decided to Repair install my windows and see if it helped, he got me this Win7 SP1 ISO and upgraded and everything went just fine, but the language was in English and I was unable to change it. I've been on this forum and a few others looking for a solution and didn't quite find out what to do, what I've done so far is:
- Checking optional updates, yet there were none considering LP's and I couldn't find the 'show hidding updates' check either.
- Copying language files from another computer, which got the language into the list of selectable languages but I ended up having a 50/50 English - Dutch on my computer.
So after a lot of trying my dad got me this ISO which was included all versions including my 64 bit Ultimate SP1 version which I've been using but it was all in Dutch, so we got that problem out of the way.
But when I go to the setup it asks me where to install and when I choose the C: drive it only says it would overwrite it and I never get to those the 'Upgrade' option to Repair install.

So basically what I'm asking for here is this:

I have Windows Ultimate x64. It's a fresh (re)install. After retrieving all available updates (including all optional drivers) and rebooting, I tried to install the Japanese Language pack via Windows Update and after maybe around twenty minutes of the software trying to install, Windows Update reports an install failure. The error message is:


Code:
Code 80070643: Windows Update encountered an unknown error.
I Googled the error code, and Microsoft says that the error is caused by a possibly corrupt .NET install. After using their .NET cleaner and reinstalling all the applications, the error persists. I looked further on Google and read a post by someone with the exact same problem as me. It looked like he was able to fix his problem pretty easily, and he explains how he resolved it in his following post, but his explanation is a little over my head. From what I can tell he used bcdboot to tell Windows where the reserved system partition is or something like that. But without explicit instructions I'm kind of in the dark. I'm not good with Windows. I prefer Linux. Basically I need what he did explained in Captain Dummy talk... I think his solution is the solution to my problem as well.

A:Installing language pack on a multi-boot system fails

Hey neat! I fixed it myself by guessing at the guy's instructions!

What he did was issue the following command:

Code:
bcdboot C:\windows /s C:
And marked my system partition as active by using the administrative tools. I thought this would remove my boot loader, but it didn't, I still have GRUB. I think I basically just gave myself write permissions to the system drive, which Windows needed to install the language pack.

I installed Windows 8 Pro and installed an additional language(let's say it's B) pack, changed system display language to B, and system locale to B.

And I got infinite BSOD after installing some drivers(not related to language pack, just I made mistake installing old programs), so I 'refresh'ed the system.

Guess what, after the refresh, system display was set to English(united kingdom, which is default), AND system locale remained as language B.

This is the problematic part;
1.I CANNOT change system display language to B, it says it's unavailable.
2.The system regards the language pack is already installed because I can still use B as system locale.
3.I cannot reinstall or remove the language pack. LPKSETUP doesn't detect B.

SO i'm pretty much stuck, and I don't want to reinstall just to change the system display language.

Is there any solution to this(removing/reinstalling language pack)?

Hi.
I've been googling for quite some time now and I can't find the answer.
Where can I find a Swedish language pack for Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 x86?

I have seen stuff like "Build 700*" when googling, but I thought those were for the old beta version of win 7?
If it's somehow relevant I don't know what Build this OS is, and I don't know how to find out.

According to google I am supposed to run Windows Update to get the language packs.
However, when I manage to run the update it finds nothing.

Most of the times I run Win Update I get an error code saying: 80072EE2
I believe that code means Win Update is too busy to handle my request at the moment.
I got this message last night. When I turned on the computer this morning I was able to update, though. Now, a few hours later, I get the damn error message again.

I also wasn't able to download anything from HP's ftp servers on the computer. (Drivers.) -I believe this might have something to do with the win update issue.
Conclusion (tl; dr):
-I can't find a Swedish Language Pack anywhere. I would very much like one.
-Windows Update is acting weird, error code: 80072EE2
-I can't seem to download from/connect to FTP servers.
Bonus, Off-Topic question:
-Why doesn't my signature show up anymore?

Help appreciated. =)

Hi there
Download the SWEDISH LIP from here

Download languages for Windows - Microsoft Windows

Even includes obscure languages like WELSH etc.

I used the Icelandic one -- works a treat on my systems. In some cases you need to install over a base ENGLISH version of W7 but I think for Swedish installing over ANY installed language version of W7 base should be OK -- the list contains the requirements.

Once you've installed go to control panel regional settings and you can get around 99% of the Interface switched to the alternate language(s). You can install as many as you like and note the Logon screen if you set the administrator options in control panel will also be presented in your chosen language.

You need to have W7 PRO or higher unfortunately -- it won't work with HOME PREMIUM -- which IMO is daft since corporates often use ENGLISH but home users are much more likely to want W7 in their native language.

You should find no trouble installing on W7 Enterprise whether X-86 or the 64 bit version.

You can switch back to the original English any time after install too.

Cheers
jimbo.

2 - I go to control Panel -> Regional and language options -> languages -> text service and input language and japanese is on there

3 - Apparently the language bar button in preference is grayed out so i can't click it

4 - Searched around the web for a solution but none works

5 - So i can't find the language bar to change the language to japanese, if i use shortcuts to change languages then what happens is if i type something it switches back to english automatically
(use shortcut like ctrl+shift+key or something, switches the language to japanese, i open notepad but when i type it goes to english and Hiragana is main setting not direct input so it can't be english)

Anyone got solution?
I'm thinking maybe a partition restore would help but i don't know.
Thanks

My buddy got a Mac laptop a little over a year ago and I was envious to note that it was innately capable of allowing him to input in Japanese in any program (most importantly, word processing). We're both students of the language, and before that, have had to install seperate programs to do word processing. I am now living in Japan, and bought a new computer shortly before I left (last summer) with Windows XP. If I'm not mistaken (and I may be), my friend had XP with MS Office (I only have the Works suite). He said he had to go somewhere to activate that function, but I haven't been able to find it for the life of me. He showed me once (on his computer), and I don't recall being able to find it on mine. I'm going to ask him again too, but in case he can't help me, which is very possible, I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to activate foreign language ability in XP. I can read Japanese fonts just fine, but it would be really nice to be able to type in them too. Also, a former co-worker once told me he found a program online that let him enter Japanese text at any time on his computer (even labeling files and such), but he could have been full of it. Anyway, is there any hope for me? Thanks a lot for any help!

A:Japanese language ability on XP

Hiya

Go to Control Panel | Regional and Language Options. Languages tab. Details. Click Add. Choose tha language you want.

You may need your Windows disk.

After its all done, you should be able to change the layout, just change it using the EN icon that should be near your clock.

Also, note this:

For right-to-left and East Asian languages select Start, Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, the Languages tab, and then select the desired check box under Supplemental language support.

Regards

I'm taking Japanese currently and need to be able to type Japanese characters. This is supposed to be easy on Windows XP, I've done it before.
I went to control panel > regional and language settings. The drop down menu has just about every language BESIDES Japanese.
I downloaded a Japanese language support file from Microsoft.com, but Japanese still does not appear in the list of languages.
What's the deal?

I'm trying to get this on my computer so I can play some japanese games that I have. I don't have the proper CD (service pack 2 proffesional) to get East Asian language support, I was hoping that there was another way of going about this. I tryed applocale, but since I don't have accual support for the language, it just plain doesn't work. So could anyone please help? I can't understand why microsoft would make this tottally seperate and not even have a download link on their site to it, is it that hard to add a few asian languages?

Hi,

Recently I installed Windows 7 Enterprise and realized that no language pack are available for download via the Windows Update.

Is it possible that Windows 7 Enterprise does not offer this option or just my DVD Setup?

Many thanks in advance.

Regards,

A:Windows 7 Enterprise Language Pack..

Windows 7 language packs are available for computers that are running Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Enterprise. The Windows 7 language packs can be installed only from the Optional Updates section in Windows Update. However, these language packs are not available on the Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server or through the Microsoft Download Center.

To download and install a Windows 7 language pack, follow these steps:
Start Microsoft Update. To do this, click Start, type Microsoft Update in the Start Search box, and then click Microsoft Update in the Programs list.
Click the optional update links for the language packs.
Under the Windows 7 Language Packs category, select the desired language pack.

Note If you install many additional language packs, the disk space and system performance are affected. In particular, disk space and system performance are affected during servicing operations, such as Service Pack installations. Therefore, we recommend that you only add a language pack to your computer if you will use the language pack.
Click OK, and then click Install updates to start the download and installation process.

Hello

I've installed Windows 7 Professional and I'd like to install a language pack on it (it's in English now). I've searched the internet and it seems language packs are only available for Ultimate and Home Premium.

Unless, you have a MSDN account. I've got MSDN access but I'm not sure if it's true. Is it? And does it contains the language I want (Dutch) or can I check this?

The problem is that i'm using a "special" version of WINXP SP2, that came without the language pack. I Have an original copy of full WINXP, and i'm looking for a way to add the language pack from it.

I tried following instructions on how to add Hebrew via the Control Pannel Regional Settings, but it didn't work. It returned an error msg reporting "The installation could not be complete. Please contact the administrator".
Can someone help?
Any help will be apprecitated.

Thanks.
