[HOWTO] Install full MUI for Windows XP SP2/3

Post by BetaNewbie »

For Windows XP w/ SP2/3, if you just install XP MUI on it, you will find that some SP2 programs are not localized, like the security center or Windows Firewall.

Now, I found a way to install full MUI for Windows XP w/ SP2/3, including FLP and POSReady.

1.Install normal XP RTM MUI, then, switch to the language you installed.
2.Reinstall XP SP2/3, this will get SP2 programs localized. (Don't worry, it will install without error, I have tested on POSReady 2009)
3.Install KB942766, this will get SP3 programs localized.
4.Reboot, then you get a fully localized Windows XP SP2/3.

Last, for those who say "why you don't install POSReady's MUI instead?", I would say that POSReady's CHS MUI has a little bug. The system font is still Tahoma in Chinese UI, this makes the characters hard to read since Tahoma is not designed for Chinese.

Couldn't you just use one of the four MUI languepacks cd's. I've got them slipstramed into a windows xp professional iso. Build 5.1.2600. You have to have the right serial to get the windows activated though. I do not use cracks to activate it, as i have genuine keys for it.

All regards
