  • I am sorry for the misunderstanding.

    Please refer to Get languages for Windows 7 and Windows Vista. Please note the "Base language and edition required" section, if you want English LIP, Ultimate or Enterprise is required. As you have  Home Premium, it is not supported. Your understanding is appreciated.

  • Hi,

    Please refer to Windows Anytime Upgrade: frequently asked questions. Here is the price Shop Windows 7 and Microsoft Store.

    In addition, the licence key only works within the same version.

  • Hi,

    LIP for Home Premium is not offically supported.

    Based on the current situation, if you prefer Spanish to be displayed in Windows Vista, you may need to choose one of the following two options:

     

    1.    Buy a Russian copy of Windows Vista.

     

    2.    Upgrade to Windows Vista Ultimate and then install the Spanish MUI. To upgrade from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows Vista Ultimate, you can use Windows Anytime Upgrade. For more information about Windows Anytime Upgrade, you can refer to the following article:

    Meanwhile, you can refer to this thread for more options.

     

    Regards,

  • Further to that, I would like to find out whether there is an additional cost for a license to upgrade to Ultimate or can I use the same Key for Spanish to install Vista in English.
