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.

You will need to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate for this capability. Only Windows 7 Ultimate includes Multilingual User Interface (Language Pack) support. You can then install the English Language Pack from under Regional and Language settings in Control Panel.
To install a different language - Multilingual User Interface (MUI) - you need to have Windows 7 Ultimate.
Anytime Upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate Type Anytime Upgrade in the Search programs and files box in the Start menu and click on the Windows Anytime Upgrade icon. From there, you can buy an Anytime Upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate. Then your can enter your Anytime Upgrade product key and perform a simple upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate so you can install a different language.
If you are in Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK, and the US you can use Anytime Upgrade. If not you will need to buy Windows 7 Ultimate, or buy Windows 7 in the language you need.

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 .
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 StartCollapse this imageExpand this image
, 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.
When you install a language pack, you can change the interface language of Windows 7 to the language that you select. Language packs also let multiple users who share a computer select distinct display languages. For example, one user can select to see the dialog boxes, menus, and other text in Japanese, whereas another user can select to see the same content in French.
To change the display language, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then type Change display language in the Start Search box.
Click Change display language.
In the drop-down list that appears, select the language that you want, and then click OK.
To uninstall a language pack, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then type Uninstall display language in the Start Search box.
Click Install or uninstall display languages.
Click Uninstall display languages.
Select the language or the languages that you want to uninstall, and then click Next.
Follow the rest of the steps to uninstall this language or these languages.
After you install the desired language packs, you can hide unwanted language packs in Windows Update. To hide unwanted language packs in Windows Update, follow these steps:
Click the Windows 7 Language Packs category in the Select the updates you want to install page to highlight all the language packs.
Right-click the highlighted updates, and then select Hide update.
It depends a bit on your installation but you should be able to do this. First install the language if you need to. (Win7 Ultimate and Enterprise allow for Multiuser User Interface Pack; All other versions use Language Interface Pack and you must install the Parent language. Microsoft.com and search for the appropriate pack.) The LIP doesn't translate everything. Then in the Control Panel, click Clock, Region and Language. Then click Region and Language, the Keyboard tab will let you change the keyboard language and the Administrative tab will let you change the System Locale. Once you install the additional language, you'll also see a tab for Display Language. Set this to Spanish. Hot keys are also available for switching on the fly once the language is installed. The Welcome Screen will get a Keyboard Layout button when more than one language is installed to switch languages then. (This can be locked for some users so see the Windows Help to find more information. It's still in the Region and Language section.)
If you only want the Spanish, consider reinstalling the OS with an international (or whatever MS calls it) version of the OS.
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.
