    I am trying to locate the Japanese input method but cannot see it listed in the ' add input method options'

    Can anyone help with locating it or letting me know if it's a downloadable.

    I installed the Japanese language pack from windows update.

    I don't know if this is related but also if I copy & paste Japanese text from an email (Thunderbird) into Adobe Illustrator is will display as this " ????????? " , if I copy it from google translate it also does the same.
    Japanese will display in my browser, email, Adobe Illustrator.
    I hope this is enough information.
    Here is a screen shot

    If your version of Windows supports it, language packs are available in the Windows Update applet in Control Panel under Optional Updates.

    Japanese wll be listed under Keyboard settings now set for the language you are using in Region and Language Options.
