    My mother recently acquired a tablet so that she can write Chinese on the computer. (She doesn't like using pinyin or any alternatives that I've tried to make her use)

    We currently own a Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit) desktop which was purchased in New Zealand.

    She purchased the tablet in China, and it worked on various computers in China.

    However, after installing the software successfully on the New Zealand computer, the software is unable to recognise characters that my mother inputs into the computer.

    How do I tackle this problem? Thank you.

    Note: The tablet is by the company 'Uniscom', if that makes any difference.

    Run windows update from the control panel.
    Check the optional updates and install the language pack that you need.

    There are no optional updates on my computer that include a language pack.

    Perhaps this might have something to do with the OS being Vista Home Premium? Or does every version of Vista include optional language pack updates?
