Hej Hasse. Det är tyvärr so som Pebbly och BFK har redan sagt. För att kunna använda språkpaketen (language packs, du måste ha Win7 Ultimate eller Enterprise.

As Pebbly and BFK here already told, you can only use language packs to change your system language if you have Windows 7 Ultimate or Enterprise.

Thanks Ted. Finland is a bilingual country, the official languages are Finnish and Swedish. I come from a bilingual family and in my daily life here in Germany I'm missing the opportunity to use my own languages. That's why I use every opportunity here to post also in Finnish and Swedish, trying not to forget forum rules about English being the SF posting language.

Thanks for the help! But I actually found a solution and now I'm running my windows 7 professional in Swedish

I used a program called "Vistalizator" to install my language, it works perfectly!
