Anyone know Korean.

My wife was given a computer by someone with with windows home but it is currently set to Korean. She has given me the daunting task of trying to get it changed to windows. It seems the only way I could find to change it was use a program called Vistalizator and use it to load the English LIP. I tried doing this but it says I need to install and windows KB first. I did this and then tried again. Now it wants a different one.

I was able to run windows update and see that there are 12 important updates and about 62 optional updates. I decided this was a good way to go instead of maybe having to them one by one. Unfortunately when I finished that the KB that Vistalizator wanted was not one that got installed. The KB is 3045999 and it gives a link to download and install it. I tried this but shortly after it starts I get a dialogue box with one button, which I am assuming is an okay button, and the message is saying that it can't be installed for some reason. I will attach a zip file if someone who knows Korean can translate for me. In the meantime I will try get the message into a log file and maybe be able to use a translator.

hi trvlr,

All those links seem to require you to have ultimate or enterprise. I have home edition. I already saw the youtube video in your link and the guys phone is jumping around so much and on such an angle it is impossible to figure out what he clicking on.

I already have English installed. The issue is I cannot change to it until I install the KB.

mmm there has to be a way without resorting to Korean...

Is this the KB link to which you went?

or this one:

And this article seems to address "your" situation completely; and confirms that Home is "very" limited in language change options - without the "Upgrade" they mention.

From what I remember from when Windows 7 was new and there were more discussions on this, Windows 7 Pro and up can be easily changed between languages but with Home Premium and down, there was no option other than reinstalling Windows 7 English version from scratch or upgrading to Windows 7 Pro first and then it is easier.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I believe Fingers in Post 6 meant Windows 7 MUI (multilingual user interface) available only in Windows 7 Ultimate & Windows 7 Enterprise. More info here -

Hi guys,

I understand at one time this was not possible with home edition, but now there seems to be many posts about using Vistalizator. I downloaded and installed this and was able to install English, so no I have both English and Korean installed. The next step is to tell Vistalizator to make English the main language. I tried this and it tells me that I need to get KB 3045999 installed before it can change the language. It is while installing this KB that I get the message I posted in Korean. The issue at this point is not much switching to English persee, rather it is trying to figure out what the message says when I try to install KB 3045999.
