  • Hi, thanks for the post. I’d like to inform you that the Multilingual User Interface (MUI) are only available for the Vista Ultimate or Enterprise editions.


    With Vista Home Basic or Home Premium, you can still use the 'Input language' option which will allow you to type in the language of your choice. You can also change the keyboard to the desired language.


    For detailed information, please check the following article:

    Hope this helps!
