Post subject:  Changing display language in XP MCE

Hello, I downloaded Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 Internal from the FTP server. I installed it in VMware Workstation Player 12 with no problem and managed to install VMware Tools. I want to change the display language, but when I go to the Regional and Language Options, I don't see the option to change languages under the "Languages" tab. I'm assuming that you can't change the language in this particular edition of XP without using Registry Editor?

You need to get MUI CD-ROM released especially for Windows XP. Check the FTP.

Okay, I downloaded the MUI pack from the FTP. I made sure that I got the correct version because mine included SP2 already. However, I'm getting a setup issue where I got an error code 67 saying that I can't connect to a database. I don't even know what this means.

Did you download a MUI pack or did you download the MUI pack?

Let me explain myself:

Windows XP MCE needs a specific MUI pack, which is called "Localization pack for Windows XP Media Center Edition". As BaRRaKudaRain42 stated, you need a special MUI pack, not just the standard MUI pack used by XP Home and Pro.

You can check this release, which contains all the localizations ever released for MCE. You can also try with this Archive.org release, which contains several individual files specific for several languages yet not all, so you might need to download the full package from the FTP at the end.

Unfortunately, it doesn't have the language I want to install (Japanese). The pack works, but I interrupted it setup by cancelling the whole thing. I don't think there is one for Japanese, is there?

I highly suggest you to look at the database every now and then.

You need both this and this.

Can I install an English MUI on top of that? If not, that's okay by me.
