Just to clarify, this thread started during the 8.1 pre-release.
For the actual 8.1 release yesterday, after I upgraded my language pack was gone. I had to go back in and download the English language pack, but it worked for me without problems.
Where are you guys getting stuck? Do you have the option to download the English pack? It says in Japanese where to click to install the download, then it requires you to log in and out (or a reboot) for the language pack to complete the installation.
If you are still having problems maybe post a screenshot.
well my problem is also solved. actualy I have 3 accounts on my notebook and I need to remove language pack from all 3 account. after that i add the language again and i saw option to download language pack. offcourse you need to reboot your m/c after installation. thx jimthenagual, for pointers.
Hi jimthenagual, thank you for following up on this problem.
On my side, even after installing the 8.1 full release, if I go into the Options window after choosing English, I don't have any option to install the language pack nor to make it a system language. All I can use English is for the keyboard.
If you have any tip, it'd be appreciated. I think I'm not doing bad with computers nor Japanese but I'm stuck here.
Hi Dan2, you're not the only one. I have been getting PMs from people who are stuck at the same place. It says no download available for the language pack for some reason. I'll post here if anyone figures it out. In the meantime, for others, here is a tutorial that is actually better than the one I posted: http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/5853-display-langu...
