Hello Roger, welcome to the Seven Forums.

The attached msinfo.txt file shows you have Windows 7 Home Premium. As Windows 7 Language Packs are a feature only included in Ultimate and Enterprise editions, you are not allowed to use them. If you have language packs installed, and I can see from the second screenshot of yours you have almost all of them, it means you have got them from unofficial sources.

There's a reason why for instance Ultimate edition costs more than Home Premium; you have to pay for the added features like language packs. For me, who have spent money to get Ultimate and those features, trying to get those features to Home Premium is piracy, and I am not willing to help or answer any questions in issues related to piracy.

Second thing is keyboard layout. Some non-Latin based keyboard layouts are a bit tricky to use. This posts shows how to use Korean keyboard layout.

If you need the language packs, you will have to use Ultimate, or Windows Enterprise... As Kari has said, any other method is considered Piracy...

You can use whatever keyboard layout you want to with every edition of Windows 7, from Starter to Enterprise. Your Windows display language stays in whatever language you have installed it, but you can change the keyboard layout. For instance, I am using English Seven Ultimate and Enterprise editions on my PC's but I mostly use Finnish keyboard layout, because it allows me to type in Finnish, Swedish and English.

To completely change the language of Windows 7, you need to have Seven Ultimate or Enterprise. For these two editions the language packs are offered as an optional update. Language paks allow you to change the display language of the Windows 7. Using language packs you can have a different display language for every user account. These user accounts can then independently change keyboard layout used. For instance, this PC of mine with Seven Enterprise has user accounts in Finnish, English, German and Swedish. German account is using German keyboard layout, all other accounts by default Finnish keyboard layout.

In other words, the keyboard layout used has nothing to do with language packs.

Here's a screenshot of my login page on a desktop running Seven Enterprise, showing accounts in different languages:

Yes, and then you downloaded language packs from an unauthorized website. They are not supposed be used in Home Premium. Upgrade to Ultimate is the best solution.

Did you check that link I posted: Pinyin Joe - MS Windows 7 Chinese Language Features, Setup Help
