    I am Window 7 Home Premium user and want to install a Japanese software.
    The installation window looks ????????? and does not show Japanese.
    I tried to download Microsoft Language Interface Packs (LIPs) but Japanese is not available. What should I do?

    Use Japanese in Windows 7 (still having a problem)


    Thank you for the guidance. I went to the website above and installed Japanese.
    This allows me to type Japanese font. And I can read Japanese in web site and microsoft word etc. However, when I tried to install a Japanese software, the installation window still looks like ??????? (????? part is probably Japanese font.)

    I remember I did the procedure above and something extra when I used Windows XP and it works. What extra should I do?

    Thank you for the answer. Is the link above for MUI? As I said in my original question #1, I am using Windows 7 Home Premium. So Windows 7 Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI) is not available. Microsoft Language Interface Packs (LIPs) is not available, either.

    I forgot the detail how to but I had no problem installing Japanese with Windows XP. Is that option not available anymore for Windows 7 user? I appreciate further assistance.

    What I have posted is the same language pack that would be installed by windows update if you had Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Enterprise. There is no other official Microsoft language pack. Since you do not have Ultimate or Enterprise you will have to use the link provided.

    This is the same as Windows 7 Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI) and Microsoft Language Interface Packs (LIPs).

    The knowledge base article (KB972813) and windows version (6.1) are part of the link which I have provided. For more information read the article: Windows 7 language packs are available for computers that are running Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Enterprise.
