Windows 7: Windows Language Pack

Windows Language Pack

Hi.
I've been googling for quite some time now and I can't find the answer.
Where can I find a Swedish language pack for Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 x86?

I have seen stuff like "Build 700*" when googling, but I thought those were for the old beta version of win 7?
If it's somehow relevant I don't know what Build this OS is, and I don't know how to find out.

According to google I am supposed to run Windows Update to get the language packs.
However, when I manage to run the update it finds nothing.

Most of the times I run Win Update I get an error code saying: 80072EE2
I believe that code means Win Update is too busy to handle my request at the moment.
I got this message last night. When I turned on the computer this morning I was able to update, though. Now, a few hours later, I get the damn error message again.

I also wasn't able to download anything from HP's ftp servers on the computer. (Drivers.) -I believe this might have something to do with the win update issue.


Conclusion (tl; dr):
-I can't find a Swedish Language Pack anywhere. I would very much like one.
-Windows Update is acting weird, error code: 80072EE2
-I can't seem to download from/connect to FTP servers.


Bonus, Off-Topic question:
-Why doesn't my signature show up anymore?

Help appreciated. =)

Hi there
Download the SWEDISH LIP from here

Download languages for Windows - Microsoft Windows

Even includes obscure languages like WELSH etc.

I used the Icelandic one -- works a treat on my systems. In some cases you need to install over a base ENGLISH version of Windows 7 but I think for Swedish installing over ANY installed language version of Windows 7 base should be OK -- the list contains the requirements.

Once you've installed go to control panel regional settings and you can get around 99% of the Interface switched to the alternate language(s). You can install as many as you like and note the Logon screen if you set the administrator options in control panel will also be presented in your chosen language.

You need to have Windows 7 PRO or higher unfortunately -- it won't work with HOME PREMIUM -- which IMO is daft since corporates often use ENGLISH but home users are much more likely to want Windows 7 in their native language.

You should find no trouble installing on Windows 7 Enterprise whether X-86 or the 64 bit version.

You can switch back to the original English any time after install too.

Cheers
jimbo.
