Windows Vista Home Prem and Langpack – compare to Linux

Even I found Punjabi (Indian) Langpack for Windows Vista after a year of its release, but finally failed to install it . Windows Don’t know

how to install it (while run first time), later it use ‘Language pack installer’ to install, while using that, it showing Dialog Window

“Select Languages to install” and not able to select LIP_pa-IN.mlc,

even I extract mlc pack, then also it is not working.

What was issue?

64-bit, you can’t  install it on Windows 64-bit version at all

Message is below on Website

“ਸਮਰਥਿਤ ਪਲੇਟਫੌਰਮਸ: LIP, Windows Vista ਦੇ ਸਿਰਫ 32-ਬਿਟ ਸੰਸਕਰਣਾਂ ਨਾਲ ਕੰਮ ਕਰਦਾ ਹੈ ਅਤੇ Windows ਦੇ ਪੂਰਵਵਰਤੀ ਸੰਸਕਰਣਾਂ ਤੇ ਜਾਂ Windows Vista ਦੇ 64-ਬਿਟ ਸੰਸਕਰਣ ਤੇ ਸਥਾਪਿਤ ਨਹੀਂ ਕੀਤਾ ਜਾ ਸਕਦਾ”

This website is too bad that I can’t change webpage in English proper, while I select “English” and press Change, it is showing

me following

“Windows Vista සඳහා වූ Windows Vista භාෂා අතුරු මුහුණත් ඇසුරුම (LIP) මගින්, Windows Vistaහි බහුල ලෙස භාවිත කෙරෙන සරි සඳහා අඩවශයෙන දේශීයකරණය වූ පරිශීලක අතුරු මුහුණතක් සපයයි. LIP ස්ථාපනයෙන් පසු, විශාරද තුළ වූ පෙළ, සංවාද කොටු, මෙනු, උදව් සහ සහාය මාතෘකා, සහ පරිශීලක අතුරු මුහුණතෙහි තිබෙන වෙනත් අයිතම, LIP භාෂාවෙන් දැක්වෙනු ඇත. පරිවර්තනය නොවුණු පෙළ Windows Vistaහි මූල භාෂාවෙන් පවතිනු ඇත. නිදසුනක් ලෙස, Windows Vistaහි ස්පාඤ්ඤ සංස්කරණයක් ඔබ මිලදී ගෙන, කැටලැන් LIPයක් ස්ථාපනය කළේ නම්, සමහරක් පෙළ ස්පාඤ්ඤ භාෂාවෙන් පවතිනු ඇත. ඔබට LIP එකකට වඩා ස්ථාපනය කළ හැකිවේ, එනිසා පරිගණකයෙහි එක් එක් පරිශීලකයන්ට ඔවුන් කැමති භාෂාවකින් පරිශීලක අතුරු මුහුණ දැක්වීමට හැකිවේ.”

to text is in Sinhala, instead of English.

So what Microsoft is doing, I don’t know. and Why I m not

using my Language if I have 64-bit version?

What is MUI?

Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI)->MUIs require a license to be used and are only available with Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows Vista Enterprise.

What is LIP?

LIPs (Language Interface Pack)  are freely available to download

LIPs require at least one parent language

Following South Asian/Indian Languages are available:

Assamese

Bengali (India)

Bengali (Bangladesh

Gujarati

Hindi

Kannada

Konkani

Malayalam

Marathi

Nepali

Oriya

Punjabi

Sinhala

Tamil

Telugu

Thai

Urdu

--------

Good Languages list, but it is hard to use and very limited

as only 32-bit user can use, then also, it is not completed.

So, Windows is no where to compare with Language Support

for Indian Language with Linux. Compare to Windows

(for Indian Language Support):

1) Installer in Indian Language (Complete Translation)

2) Default you will get MUI with all Linux. You can

change language anytime

3) Language Installation and remove is very easy. With

Single install Keyboard layout, translation available.
