More about windows language pack
  1. Update: seems to have been a hotfix applied. I am now able to set the OS to English.
  2. Hi, I have the same problem. Can you suggest what hotfix you have applied?
    I'm in big trouble, please reply soon.
  3. Uninstall then reboot and re-install the language pack. That worked for me. Don't forgot you'll need to reboot again after you install the English language pack.
  4. hi jim what do you mean by uninstall, i am not getting uninstall option but rather i am able to remove them from language section.
  5. Hi GaijinInTrouble I have the same problem and I can`t remove the language pack so if you figured it out, please let us know.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

    Start in your control panel, click here


    Next if the English is not showing up like it is here, click to add a new language, scroll to English and add it.


    Next, click on the options here


    Click here to add the OS language pack


    I think it makes you reboot your computer now.
    Once you are back in, go back to control panel, there is one more step.

    Click here to make English the OS primary language


    You will need to log out and back in now.

    Post and let me know if this works for you, I may have gotten the order wrong, but I believe that was it. Good luck!

  14. 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.
  15. 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-language-change-windows-8-a.html
  16. Made a video on how to change the OS language, hope it helps
