My laptop has Windows Vista Ultimate x64 as its operating system. I wanted to install Hindi Language Interface Pack and so downloaded the LIP from microsoft downloads.
As per the given instructions, i clicked on the pack to install it. The Microsoft Language Installer runs and asks me to point the folder where the language pack is available. I browse and point to the folder of the mlc pack but it says no language packs found.
Please guide me in this regard.

Re: Installation of Language Interface Pack
Hello I think you need to unpack the file before you can install it. go to that folder you downloaded the file and try to unpack the file with winzip or winrar. then set the new unpacked location for your microsoft language installer.

The original language of the operating system cannot be changed without also updating the associated driver files, and those driver files are not available in languages other than the one that ships on the computer. However, the operating system can be configured to display in a different language by upgrading to the Ultimate version of the Vista operating system and then installing and using the appropriate Windows Vista language pack.
To change the language settings, a language pack must first be installed. Follow this procedure to download and install a language pack.
Click the Start button, and then click Control Panel .
In the Control Panel window, click Clock, Language, and Region .
In the Clock, Language, and Region window, under Region and Language , click Install or uninstall display languages .
Under Choose to install or uninstall display languages , choose Install display languages .
Under Choose your method of install , choose Launch Windows Update
Under Select the updates you want to install , select the Language Packs to install and click the OK button.
NOTE: The Language Pack updates will be listed under the optional updates .
click start control panel,regional and language options select regional language options from the drop down list select the language you want also from the bottom drop up list you can select your present location location hope this helps
Windows Vista Ultimate offers a number of enhancements, called"Extras," that provide additional exclusive capabilities to users.Vista Ultimate Language Packs are Extras that make use of the Multilingual UserInterface (MUI) to enable menus and text in different languages. 1.Log into Vista. Make sure to log in as theuser for which you want to apply a Language Pack.
2. Start Windows Update. Hit the Start button, and type"Windows Update" in the search field. Click on the Windows Updateapplication that is highlighted at the top of the window, under"Programs."
3. Run Windows Update. Click on"Check for Updates." The window will then indicate whether or not newupdates are available. Click on "Show Available Updates." A dialogwill appear showing a list of available updates, including Windows UltimateLanguage Packs.
4. Install aLanguage Pack. Select a language, and click "Install." Note thatLanguage Packs are large downloads of approximately 200MB, and require as muchas 1.2GB of storage space. Set aside at least 30 minutes for the installation.Accept any User Account Control (UAC) prompts that appear.
5. Apply the LanguagePack. Once the Language Pack has downloaded and installed, go to"Start," "Control Panel," and then double-click"Regional and Language Options." Select the "Keyboards andLanguages" tab, then choose the new language in the drop-down list under"Choose a display language."
You can only change the language of Vista if you have Vista Ultimate or
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, 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).
You can get an English MUI (multi user interface) pack. Once installed, you can change your Vista language over to English. Note that you can't get this for Vista Basic, you'll have to purchase Enterprise or Ultimate because MUI packs are only available in Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows Vista Enterprise.

With additional language files, you can change the display language on your computer so that you can view wizards, dialog boxes, menus, Help topics, and other items in Windows in a different language.
There are two types of language files:
Windows Vista Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI). Windows Vista MUIs provide a translated version of most of the user interface. MUIs require a license to be used and are only available with Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows Vista Enterprise. If you are using Windows Vista Ultimate, you can download MUIs by using Windows Update. If you are using Windows Vista Enterprise, contact your system administrator for information about installing additional languages.
Windows Vista Language Interface Pack (LIP). Windows Vista LIPs provide a translated version of the most widely used areas of the user interface. LIPs are freely available to download, and most LIPs can be installed and used on any edition of Windows Vista. Because not all of the user interface is translated, LIPs require at least one parent language. The parts of the user interface that are not translated into the LIP language are displayed in the parent language. When you download a LIP, you get the parent language requirements for that language. The parent language pack needs to be installed before the LIP can be installed. For more information, including a list of languages available for downloading, go to the Microsoft Local Language website.
