Windows 8 Pro simplified Chinese Language Pack installation issue


Accidentally, I rebooted my computer when it is in the middle of the download/install language Pack Chinese simplified.  Now I have a problem installing this language.  Pack of traditional Chinese language installed correctly, but every time I tried to install the simplified Chinese Language Pack, WIndows skip download and goes directly to the stage of installation and after a few minutes, said "failed".  I think I've damaged the download.  How to remove downloaded files and have windows download files when I do an installation?
Anyone know where Windows 8 stores the downloaded language pack files?
Thank you

Refresh your PC and try again. You might have conflicting desktop applications that are the cause of the problem.
Here's what will happen:
  • Your files and your personalization settings do not change.
  • Your PC will change back to their default values.
  • Applications on Windows Store will be kept. However, applications will be restored to their original state factory as well.
  • Applications that you have installed discs or sites Web is removed.
  • A list of removed apps will be saved to your desktop. Try to find the app in the list that is the cause of the problem that you are facing.
This may take a few minutes, and your PC will restart. Plug your PC before you start.

  • Problems of simplified Chinese Language Support Package

    NEED HELP Please! Trying to complete our Visa for China applications.  These applications must be completed online through Adobe.  When I clicked the box to start the application, it says the following:

    "You must install the Simplified Chinese Language Support Package to take this measure in this form.  Under the current configuration, this resource is not available. »

    So I did it.  Installed the support.  When I try to open the downloaded file, Adobe pulls up and gives me this:

    «Adobe Reader could not open "FontPack1000_zh_CN .msi (1)" because it is not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an attachment to e-mail and has not been correctly decoded).»

    I don't know what to do.  I use the version the latest Firefox.  I have to solve this problem as soon as possible.  These forms must be completed and printed online.  The Chinese Consulate does not allow them to be handwritten.

    OK, this font download pack is definitely not for you. An MSI file is Windows only and cannot be implemented in Mac OS X.  .

  • Chinese language pack for normal (i.e., not office) XP

    I looked in the downloads and it seems that all the Chinese language packs I can find require Office XP.  I need a normal XP, apparently, because I installed the language pack and it does not work.  The Global IME will not install because I do not have Office (he says).

  • 8007065B Windows Update will not install language packs

    In the past, I have installed language packs. It has been long since I tried, or needed to. Recently I tried to install the Japanese language pack, only to get the error of 8007065B, which I have found no solution for.

    I tried to manually install the language pack download Windows Update, and I said that it's incompatible. The same goes for any language pack.

    I think I can have interrupted an update a long time there, which gives a language pack partially down, or something similar. I don't remember very well, however. Maybe some file system has been damaged which causes all of the language packs seem incompatible?

    However, I am at my wits end here. I have no real understanding of what may be the problem.

    Hi Imrinfected,
    1. which edition of Windows is installed on the computer?
    2. do you have any security software installed on the system?
    This problem occurs if a previous Windows Update process did not cause the computer to be in a corrupted state. This prevents the installation of any language pack.
    Step 1: Check if the Japanese language pack is listed, if so, then remove
    a. Click Start and then click Control Panel.
    b. in the Control Panel, click clock, language, and region, click on regional and Language Options and then click on Change display language.
    c. on the keyboard and languages tab, click install/uninstall languages under display language. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password, or click on continue.
    d. in choosing to install or remove languages, click on remove languages.
    e. under Select the languages that you want to delete, select the language that you want to remove, and then click Next.
    f. click on the language you want to remove and then click on remove.
    g. restart the computer and try to install the package of language manually in safe mode.

  • Computer crashes every time I try to install a windows recommended an update, (KB972813) language packs

    Just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 - bit version. I have already installed all the updates without problem, but when I try to install one of the recommended update language packs my computer hangs during the update "facility" progress bar gets about 90% full. I never get an error screen, the computer just hangs, even the mouse becomes unresponsive. I waited for hours in the hope, it was just temporary, but I ended up having to reset the computer. He told me he could not update and restores the changes when it starts. This happens whenever I try to install a language pack.


    I suggest that you follow the steps below and check if the problem persists.

    Step 1:

    a. click on Start

    b. open the Control Panel from the menu display by (up/right) select one of the views of the icon .

    c. click Troubleshooting. On the bottom of the screen, under system and security , select fix problems with the Windows Update troubleshooting tool . Follow the instructions.

    You can also check the information in the following article.

    Problems with installing updates

    Step 2:

    If that does not solve the problem, start your computer in a clean boot State and install the update to KB972813 . There could be a software program of third party in conflict with the update. Clean boot helps eliminate conflicts of third party software.

    Note: Follow step 7 to restart your computer after you install the update in a clean boot state as usual.

  • Windows 8 people's Republic of CHINA (unilingual OEM version in simplified Chinese) can be upgraded to Windows 8 Pro * full * English?

    I bought a Dell XPS One 2710 in China that came pre-installed with Windows 8 RPC. It seems that it is a unique language locked in simplified Chinese version.

    The standard procedure to add another language changes only partially certain interfaces of applications in English, but the operating system is always in Chinese.

    I think so

    1 - is the upgrade to Windows 8 Pro with Windows 8 Pro Pack as described here

    2 - or buy a Windows 8 Pro System Builder and just reinstall

    Solution 1 is my favorite option, I want to keep the existing configuration and the Dell applications.

    Does anyone have experience making 1 or 2?

    Thank you.

    You should upgrade to Windows 8 Pro in Chinese, then you can download the English Language Pack for free:

    To the top of Windows 8 for Windows 8 Pro:

    Language packs are available for Windows 8 and for Windows RT

    Thank you Andre, everything is now in English!

    For all the foreigners living in China who want to have Windows 8 English I highly recommend to do as described below. It will add the cost of a license of Windows 8 Pro Pack, but will save you hours of waiting, of discussions, resettlement and uncertainty.

    Windows 8 CPP that comes pre-installed on all computers OEM in China is locked with simplified Chinese only to the language of the OS.

    You can buy Windows 8 Pro Pack, which upgrades the CPP of 8 Windows preinstalled on your new computer to a full-blown Windows 8 Pro with Media Center

    Pack Windows 8 Pro can be purchased online from China, and you can pay with Paypal

    Windows 8 Pro has all the features to download and add language packs.

    Start the upgrade using the following screenshots

    You will need an address in China and turn off your VPN before you start the upgrade.

    There is only one choice of product to buy the Windows 8 Pro Pack.

    The update took a few hours of downloading so start at night and sleep at home.

    After the upgrade you have Windows 8 Pro with Media Center always configured with Chinese as their main language.

    You need then download and install the English language according to these screenshots pack

    The US English language pack is 154 MB and may take a few hours to download as well.

    Restart, then return to the screen of language making English as your primary language, as described in these screenshots

    Reboot again, and voila!

    PS: after upgrading your Windows 8 Pro is activated automatically with the new product ID, but you haven't lost all common applications of OEM and warranty (Dell in my case).

    You always connect to the app store Windows of China and are able to install apps * except * those made specifically by the OEM. In my case, there are only a few and I can't install Renren for Dell for example, but there is also another version not OEM in the app store.

    This limitation is explicitly mentioned in the notes here, and I confirm.

    OEM applications that I have installed upgrading are still there and working, then you might want to install everything before the upgrade.
