  • Hi


    You cannot install a 'Base' Language Interface Pack (LIP) such as English onto a computer that has another 'Base' language such as German.


    The only way you can do this is to use an MUI (Multi User Interface) language pack. These are only available to consumers who are using the Vista Ultimate version.


    On the following website, the 'Windows Vista SKU/Language Pack' table shows the 36 Base languages.


    The 'Windows Vista - LIP (Language Interface Pack)' table shows the LIP's that are available for each base language.
