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.
