    Hi,

    I recently bought a laptop installed with Vista in Chile.

    Naturally, everything is in Spanish.

    I am giving the computer to a friend who doesnt speak any spanish and I would like to change it all to English.

    Can anyone tell me how to do this please?

    Thanks.

    mr wolf,

    Here is a Microsoft link that (sort of) explains what the difference is between LIP and MUI.
    Windows Vista Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI).*
    Windows Vista Language Interface Pack (LIP).*

    If you have Vista Ultimate - you will be in luck - if you have - Windows Vista Ultimate -
    MUI is also available for Vista Enterprise -
    I have never installed either of these - so not sure what LIP, would be lacking.


    "If you are using Windows Vista Enterprise, contact your system administrator for information about installing additional languages."

    Great thanks.

    Think i can only try the LIP, as its just a home version of vista.

    Hopfully it is sufficient.
