  • Hi Guogle,

     

    If you have Windows XP installation disc, you can install the East Asian Language Pack by loading the disc. However, if the disc is not available,here is a third party website which provides the cplexe.exe file. You can download the file and point to its location while the installation process requesting the file.

     

    Please Note: Since the web site is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this information.

     

    Hope this helps.

     

    Regards,

  • Connect to Windows Update and download it.

    note that Home versions doesn't have access to this.

  • The third party link is way too old in addition to a following post saying that this cplexe.exs  file is not complete enough. Can someone help with this? I have tried for a week to fix this. I have downloaded countess SP's, read countless posts and wasted way too much time. My issue (please don't make me think that it was a mistake to do so) is that I purchased and installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on my laptop. It works fine. The problem is that where I work, they all run XP 32 bit. So, the biggest issue is that it is an Architectural firm so I need to use CAD 32 bit. I installed Virtual XP 32, but it cannot read chinese language, so all my work files are little squarees where communication should be. Please help.

  • This is really bad advice; I am surprised that a Microsoft employee would give it.  You should never download Windows system executables from third-party sites! 

    1. They could be infected with a virus.  Even if you verify the file to be legitimate today, it could be changed tomorrow.

    2. The distribution of the file cplexe.exe is illegal under the Microsoft EULA.  So you are downloading an illegally distributed file, which perhaps put you in violation of the Microsoft EULA.

    Anyone who is running Windows XP Mode in Windows 7 likely will not have a Windows XP installation disc, so that is not a solution.  Microsoft needs to fix this problem in their Windows XP Mode software.

    I would encourage anyone who encounters this problem to report this bug in Windows XP Mode to those who can actually fix it.  These dangerous and fragile workarounds are no good.

  • Couldn't you just download the language pack from here:

  • No good. Those are for relabeling displays in a non-English language. You have to have the parent language already installed to use them.
