Install second language from .iso?

I currently have Windows 7 RC1 installed in english but for screenshot purposes I would like to have japanese installed as a second language. I downloaded the japanese RC1 .iso, is there a way I can add the language files?

Thanks for help in advance!

You will have to install Windows 7 with Japenese.

Yes, it can be done. You don't specify x32 or x64 so here are both the files you need;

x64 - amd64fre_client_ja-jp-GB1CxLP_JA_DVD.iso (078B0F90B)
x32 - x86fre_client_ja-jp-GB1CLP_JA_DVD.iso (06D8F6779)

Those will allow you to install the Japanese interface packs. Apologies, I cannot post links to those directly (I'm bound by an agreement w/MS) but I'm sure you can track them down.

Good luck.

Thanks Captain Zero, found it

EDIT: I extracted the .iso and pointed the language installer to the .cab. It detects the pack successfully as a MUI type language pack but says "This language cannot be installed on this computer" any suggestions? For info I have Windows 7 7100 RC1 x86 and downloaded the x86 pack
