Hi mates, I installed Professional version of Windows 7 (final RTM) and then saw that I can't install any additional languages on this english version. Is there any way how to do that? Thanks for any replies.

Legally Languages can only be installed in ultimate.

Perhaps I was mistaken. I thought Ultimate simply included all of the MUI, and the necessary MUI packages could be downloaded and applied to other versions.

I was mistaken, wasn't I? I have pre-ordered the wrong version for a Spanish speaking friend.

You should be able to download and install any additional language packs from MS Update...

They will be under optional updates. Try that.

Hmm. So the OP has a fixable problem? Try Windows Update.

NO!

That is not allowed to happen. Quick, someone do something before it can be fixed!

NOTE: To the OP, that is just a joke, no worries.

The way I understand things is that only ultimate allows multiple languages to be installed concurrently, I am not sure what the EULA states about the changing of languages in the Pro Version. In vista I recall it was prohibited in certain SKUs. As pro is a new SKU I think only Microsoft can state the actual situation

you can change language in any version of Windows7 if u change language on support before install it, u can have only one language active

Quote:
Deploying an image that contains multiple languages, but only one language is activated as the default.

Licensing requirements state that Windows 7 can include only a single language, with the exception of the Windows 7 Ultimate and the Enterprise editions. These are referred to as single-language editions. When multiple language packs are added to a Windows image and a single-language edition of Windows is deployed, during Windows Welcome (OOBE) users are prompted to select the language they want to use from a list of available languages. Once that language is selected, and the computer is restarted, all other language packs will be deleted from the computer by the language-pack removal task.
refer Microsoft Technet
