Changing the main language in Windows Vista and 7

August 11, 2010

Recently I bought a new laptop for my parents. They live in Peru and for them having Windows in English is very complicated.

I started searching online on how to change the main language in Windows Vista, but apparently you have to have the Business Premium or Ultimate versions to be able to do it. Unless you use Vistalizator. This free software will allow you to use Microsoft’s own language packs in any version of Vista or 7.

The installation was very simple and after downloading the Spanish language pack the software took care of the rest.

Recently I also used this software to allow a customer to use Arabic in her computer. It worked flawlessly. Highly recommended.
