2. I can only add Korean language - not the "Microsoft IME". The "Microsoft IME" option doesn't appear for me in this menu:
There is only "Korean" for me there, no sign of "Microsoft IME" even in the "Show More..." sub-section of Korean / Keyboard.
if you install the Korean Character set (can be done in any version of Windows) the Squares will disappear
I'm trying to learn a bit of Cantonese and I had the same problem with Chinese symbols -- works fine after installing the character set.
Note this is DIFFERENT to the display Language.
To see if it works just logon to a korean / chinese web site --Google for instance and see if the display is OK.
In general you don't need the whole Language interface just to DISPLAY the characters - just add SUPPORT for the language ( I think it's the EAST ASIAN Language support option you need).
That way you can keep English as the display language but still show documents etc in Korean correctly. (If you have a Korean keyboard you can input in Korean too).
Note however FULL Multi languge Interface support is only available in versions of Windows Higher than HOME PREMIUM - you'll need Professional, Ultimate or Enterprise.
DISPLAYING foreign character sets is possible in ANY version of Windows however.
For example Hangul - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Works fine on my machine
