Can't change Display Language to EN on Windows 8


  • I can't change my laptop's display language since I upgraded it to Windows 8.
    There's no option to change it, all it says is "Es ist kein Sprachpaket verfügbar" (There is no language pack available).

  • Where did you installed Windows 8?

    Did you installed the ISO file or installer file?

    You might installed different language version for your Windows 8.

  • If you want to change display language to English on a non-English Windows 8 system, you need to launch C:\Windows\System32\lpksetup.exe to install the English language pack first.

    I bought my laptop from germany maybe that's why it's in german now? I didn't install it from an ISO file, I ran the setup I downloaded from MS website and upgraded from Windows 7.

    I don't know what to do, it doesn't give me any option to download/install a language pack as you can see there in the image. Is there a registry edit that would enable that?

    I'm gonna try that and see if it works.

    edit: Nope, it asks me to point the folder where the english pack is but I don't know where to download it.

  • I'm having the same problem. I have accidentally downloaded the german version of Windows 8 and now i'm running into some diffuculties with it and would like to change my system language to german, but the option to install another language pack is not available. Neither of suggested solutions worked for me.

  • Hi,

    I have the same problem. After a clean Win8-Enterprise-Installation (Volume-License/Baselanguage "German") there is no download-option for en-us and I cannot find any manual download for the english-language pack.

    Is there any solution or download-link available yet??
