Installing French language to Win 7 Ultimate


I just bought a new pc that came with Win 7 Ultimate in English. I understand that with this version i should be able to modify the language.

I did update and choose the French pack. Unfortunaly, the French pack does not appeared in the list Control Panel/region and language/Display language

Any hint
