    Please understand it is illegal to install display language on Windows 7 Professional version. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  • Windows 7 Language Packs can be installed only on the Enterprise and Ultimate editions: you'll have to update your Windows 7 installation to one of these editions before installing a Language Pack.
    Take a look at the following links

  • HI Bruno Thanks for your quick response,

    We are using windows 7 professional in around 50 PCs but we have some japanese users also, so  i want to change their user interface in japanese, so is there any option to change windows 7 professional in japanese version.

    Suggestion for microsoft:   Microsoft should make japanese language version for windows 7 Professional also,because most of the people use windows 7 professional version.

  • Have you already bought the Windows 7 Professional? If not get the Ultimate version. The Ultimate version has everything the Professional version has plus you can use the language packs for it. If you have the Pro version already just upgrade some of the computers to Ultimate. I know it's not the answer you were looking for but it's about the only way to go.

    And yes it is ridiculous that all versions of Windows 7 can't use the different language packs. They always want to make things difficult.

  • Hi, Schloicka Thanks for your reply

    We have just bought 30 Dell laptops with windows 7 Pro & after that we come to know that it does not support Multi Language Pack , So its big trouble for us .We were thinking that if Multi Language pack support Windows XP Pro than it will also support Windows 7 Pro, that's way we bought win 7 pro otherwise we will never bought it if we know it does'nt support.

  • You can download the language packs from the following link. There are both 32 & 64 bit versions. I don't know if this will help you but you can try to google the situation. You may be able to get Dell to swap some computers so you can have some with Windows Ultimate or keep some of your XP computers around.
