The Language Packs are only supported in Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows 7 Enterprise. They will be listed in the

Windows Update screen. If you do not have Windows 7 Ultimate you can't use the Language packs.

You may follow this procedure to download and install a Windows 7 language pack:

1. Start Microsoft Update. To do this, click Start, type Microsoft Update in the Start Search box, and then click

Microsoft Update in the Programs list.Collapse this imageExpand th

2. Click the optional update links for the language packs.

3. Under the Windows 7 Language Packs category, select the desired language pack.

Note If you install many additional language packs, the disk space and system performance are affected. In

particular, disk space and system performance are affected during servicing operations, such as Service Pack

installations. Therefore, we recommend that you only add a language pack to your computer if you will use the

language pack.

4. Click OK, and then click Install updates to start the download and installation process.
