    Adding English (US) language in Windows 2000
    « on: July 05, 2012, 07:13:06 AM »
    Hi All,

    I join new organisation & they have Windows 2000 professional in 4 PC. It is installed in Spanish language And I don't understand anything. I want to change English (US) language without using Windows 2000 CD.

    I downloaded Service Pack 4 but it shows me Error "Setup cannot update your Windows 2000 files because the language installed on your system is different from the update language"

    Please help me, I am getting hard time to resolve this problem.

    Thanks All,

    You may be out of luck...the English language Pack needs to be purchased from MS for other language editions i believe.

    Versions of Windows Prior to 7 were localized installations. That is- there were no "language packs", at least not as far as I recall.
    I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

      Shouting for attention is ill-mannered and childish. What part of this do you not understand?

      To install a language, click its check box and then click the Apply button. You’ll be asked for the Windows 2000 CD-ROM.

      There are two ways in which Windows 2000 can support multiple languages - localized versions of the operating system and Regional Settings (also called Locales) within a localized version. To install a Locale you need the CD, unless it has been installed already.
