    I was recently given a genuine copy of Windows Vista Ultimate. I poped the DVD into a PC running XP, and decided to finally upgrade to Vista, i just couldn't be bothered in the first place. Anyway, I'ts currently running fine yet i have a major problem. The copy had installed vista with Arabic;something i didn't know prior to installation. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So i opened up windows update, and downloaded the English addon, it downloaded fines, but installation gave me an error. I thought this happened because i did it through windows update, so i went ahead and downloaded the sperate MUI file, but i'm also getting the same error when installing.

    The error is just a window saying that installation wa in successful, took me some time to read and translate it.


    Has anyone tried installing MUI files on Vista Ultimate Successfully? And before i get a lot of links for letmegooglethatforyou, i already tried and google wasn't being my friend, it only gave me a bunch of results on how and showing the steps to install the MUI files, which i tired and it was giving me the above error. Plus all of the windows help is in Arabic [​IMG] Despite the fact i live in a arabic-speaking country i barely know how to read the damn language. Anway its all weird since EVEYTHING is from right to left, even the start orb xD

    Any help is greatly appreciate, i'd really like to enjoy this copy of Windows Vista.

    I had it working on my laptop before I downgraded it to XP. But as far as I can remember there were no problems at all installing MUIs and using them.

    It comes straight out of the box in arabic, there is nothing i can do about it [​IMG],

    I'm actually thinking of selling the copy, going out and buying an English one, anyway thanks for Minox_IX, and P.S for suggesting or confirming that it worked for you, possibly something went wrong prior or during installation, anyway thanks to everyone
