    My problem is that I can't read/write in Hebrew on Windows applications (non-Unicode).


    The problem is that i'm using a "special" version of WINXP SP2, that came without the language pack. I Have an original copy of full WINXP, and i'm looking for a way to add the language pack from it.

    I tried following instructions on how to add Hebrew via the Control Pannel Regional Settings, but it didn't work. It returned an error msg reporting "The installation could not be complete. Please contact the administrator".


    Can someone help?


    Any help will be apprecitated.

    Thanks.

    You can't change the Windows native language with a repair, you need a clean install.

    thx for ur reply.

    I'm not looking to change Windows native language, only to add hebrew support for none uni-code programs. All I need is to know how can I had the language pack that i have on cd to my current Windows version, without re-installing Win.
