How to install Language packs in windows 7 service pack 1 (sp1) Starter, Home basic, home premium and professional Editions.

Welcome back,
        windows 7 comes with six editions like starter, home basic, home premium, professional, enterprise and ultimate.
Every edition has different features and the ultimate edition includes all features but problem is every one can’t afford ultimate edition.
Today we talk on Multilingual User Interface (MUI) packages.
This feature is available via windows update in enterprise and ultimate editions all other editions are not supported via windows update.
So what to do if you recently purchased a laptop or a desktop pc with Windows 7 in English or any other language and you want to use it with your national language. But unluckily your windows edition is starter, or home basic, home premium which is not directly allowed to install MUI Packs (language packs).
Don’t worry we have a solution named Vistalizator.
Vistalizator is a small utility to install language interface packs in windows vista and seven.
How to use vistalizator,
First of all we need our language pack file which you will download from internet by searching windows 7 sp1 language packs in google or any good search engine or from Microsoft website. (language packs are also available on vistalizator site)


Now you are ready to install by running Vistalizator.
But our topic is to install language interface pack in windows 7 sp1 (service pack 1).
When you run vistalizator on windows 7 sp1 it will gives you error looks like this.

Don’t upset every problem has a solution, just follow these steps. 
1. Right click on Vistalizator and then go to Properties.

2. now click on Compatibility tab then click on "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and select  windows 7 then click on "Run this program as an administrator" then click OK.
3. Finally now run vistalizator again it wil works fine looks like this image.
4. now click on Add languages and select your downloaded language pack file.
5. now program verifies the file and then click on Install Language and just wait until finish this will takes up to 15 minutes depends on system then vistalizator ask's to restart the system. save your work and restart.
that's it. after restarting system your selected language will be applied.
and if you want to revert to your old Language just run vistalizator the select your language and click on change language.

Hello, I tried to install language pack en-us on my coputer 7 professional, which is in german. But during the installtion I saw this error:
Sorry, the internal installation failed, as this is an experimental feature, success is not guaranteed, you can use express installation instead.
that would be very nice if you help me.

I bought a Toshiba Sattellite L700-t30N with Windows 7 Home Basic in Chinese. If I follow your method to convert the language to English, will it affect any of the Drivers or any other system components?

Hi, I wanted to install simply an arabic keyboard to write in arabic but I wanted everything else in English. When I installed the arabic language pack, the whole system is operating in arabic now.. Is there anyway I can change this ? I want only to install arabic keyboard to choose between english and arabic. Thank you

Admin said...

@Ahmad Mcbaourab you can use vistalizator again and select English language again after restart. go to Control panal > Regional and Language Options then select from top Languages tab then in "text services and input languages" click on details now you can click on add to add your required arabic keyboard.

if you need any further help just comment
