Language Bar Korean

Specs: Vista Home Premium, AMD XP 2000+ 512mb PC 270

I have a client that just bought a new computer with Vista Home Premium. They are Korean so they want to use the language bar to change the keyboard back and forth between English and Korean. So, I added Korean to the keyboard, but it doesn't change the characters to Korean for some reason. I tried Russian and that worked just fine, but whenever I change it to Korean it doesn't change the characters. I clicked the button to view the keyboard layout and it shows all the keys as English still. Am I missing something? I remember in XP that you had to enable asian languages, but I don't see that option in Vista. Do I need to download a language pack and where do I get it? Thanks.

Thanks for the links. So does this mean that there is no support for the Korean keyboard layout unless you upgrade to Enterprise or Ultimate? I'm not sure I get what they are saying about the LIP stuff. I just need the keyboard to type Korean characters. Can I get a straight answer as to how this can be done because Microsoft just gives vague responses. I need to know very clearly if Vista Home Premium can have the keyboard type Korean characters. I never had this problem in XP dammit!

It can be done - please see

Basically - you have to install Microsoft IME when you install the Korean language. Then when you go to the little toolbar KO/ENG, make sure you kick on Microsoft IME - which will give you the korean/english option. Its strange why they seperated it. I would guess 1 is reading and the IME change is to change to typing. Hope that helps
