How do you do it. Normally Windows explorer would prompt for it. But is there an individual method for installing the kanji characters and such. I hate to see my screen in blocks.

Possibly if you do a windows update, it will ask you if you want to install certain language packs..... and I think they always come with a service pack update.

Now normally I get those prompts to install language scripts when I visit forigen sites. But there's another way to go about it...

- Go into the Control Panel
- From there, open up "Regional and Language Options"
- Once inside, click on the Advanced Tab
- Towards the bottom of the page, in the box called "Code page conversion tables" just click on each language you want to install. Or just do what I did and install them all.

I don't know if they're gonna ask for your Windows CD or not. hopefully you have it :)

Thanks, that's what I was searching for. I already installed the Japanese by visiting a foreign site, with the prompting to install the pack.
