Installed XP Mode English, Need to install Japanese XP mode Win7 Ult

Okay here's the deal

I installed VM ware installed XP mode English thinking I could change locale well no dice

So I was wondering can I install another XP mode but this time in Japanese

I don't have to worry about licenses since I have like 12 copies of XP

Reason is that I have programs that work only in XP English and others that only work in the Japanese Unicode

As for info App Locale is not an option since it doesn't boot the program, Mind you I dont need to run them at the same time

Any Ideas

Your specs say you have Ultimate, so why not download and install Microsoft Virtual PC and Japanese Windows XP Mode?

Download here: Download Windows XP Mode

I am not sure I can follow you... If you have Windows XP Mode running on Virtual PC in Japanese, that will be completely Japanese. What more do you need?

Okay I think your not following mate, hmm let me see

I have Ultimate English version (Main OS) = programs like Photoshop ext

I have XP mode English mode IE (already Installed)= a broker program that only works on English version and does not work on Japanese version of XP mode

I need XP mode Japanese mode as-well = I have two programs that don't work on English version of XP mode but work in Japanese XP mode

So I need to be able to switch from Win 7 - XP mode Eng - XP mode Jap to access all my programs

Hope that clarifies the post a bit

Just curious, have you tried to install the Japanese version?

They are just virtual machines, in Virtual PC.

You can have more than one virtual machine installed.

Here's a thread on that very subject,

Can I run multiple copies of XP Mode?

I tried to install the Japanese version but it said

Another version of this product is already installed to configure or remove the existing version of this product use add/remove programs on the control panel

which is true since i have the English version on there and i need both English and Japanese

as for that thread, I thought of that but that's just multiple instances of the same program run through the VPC

Why don't you just use one of those as a virtual machine.
