JSI Tip 3112. How do I add multiple language support for Windows NT and Windows 2000?

To add support for additional languages, navigate to the Langpack folder on the CD-ROM and right click a <language>.inf file that you wish to install. Press Install.

NOTE: If you are prompted for the location of a file that is not in this folder, enter the I386 folder and return to the Langpack at the next file prompt.

Restart your computer.

To enable a language and specify a keyboard layout:

1. Control Panel / Regional Settings.

2. Select the appropriate language and press Apply.

3. On the Input Locales, select or Add and select the appropriate language and press Properties.

4. In the Keyboard Layout box, press the keyboard layout and press OK.

5. Press OK.
