Vista Language packs in W7 - possible or not

Hi all
Anyone know if it's possible to install the VISTA language packs into W7.

I need the Icelandic language for some testing but have only got the VISTA language pack
Anybody tried installing a VISTA lang. pack into W7. (In this case the requirement is for the x-86 version)

Hi Jimbo,

Seven does have language packs. If you have been doing updates it should be included. I hid the language packs because I don't use them, albeit I just checked on the hidden updates and they are there. But, there is not a language pack included for Iceland. Not sure but don't they speak a form of Danish because there is a Danish language pack. Not sure this will help, but here's hoping.
