  • To install Arabic you need to have Windows 7 Ultimate or Enterprise.

     

    Install complete language with a Language Pack (LP) - MUI
    Language Packs (or MUI - Multilingual User Interface) - Language packs provide a translated version of Windows dialog boxes, menu items, and help content. Switching to certain languages with a Language Pack, such as English, Spanish, French, German, Chinese, Arabic, and others, requires your computer to be running Windows 7 Ultimate. You can download any of the available language packs by using Windows Update. If you don't have Ultimate you can do an Anytime Upgrade to Ultimate.
