Default Change Thai Language Interface To English

Hmm, I'm having a similar problem... my partner is Thai and I would love to configure her user profile to Thai (menus and desktop etc) help mentions the 'Windows XP Professional MUI Pack' but a search online reveals that it is only available to corporates
for multinational use..... I did the same as SoomChai and installed the Thai language interface pack (over my UK english install) and discovered that it's a one-shot thing.... all or nothing, luckily I'm pretty familiar with XP (but I can't read Thai) and
know how to remove programmes by feel! (Start Menu\Settings\Control Panel\Add Remove Programs\......)

Best Regards, Andrew

PS I already have the Thai language pack installed for Internet Explorer and this was typed on a Thai Kedmanee keyboard using Alt+Shift to switch input languages.

Windows XP is written in specific language versions, therefore one
cannot change it from one language version to another. You'll need
to purchase a "Full Version" of Windows XP in the language version
you want, reformat your drive and install it "clean".

Or if you have an available empty drive or partition, you can install
another "Full Version" of Windows XP in a different language version
and create a dual-boot configuration.

A good third-party partitioning program is Partition Magic 8.

Carey, Thanks for the prompt reply, it's a good job she's bilingual then, and is happy enough with the UK English setup with a Thai Kedmanee keyboard. Maybe something for Microsoft in the future though to be able to have multiple user languages on the one
XP installation or to make the MUI available to single users and not just corporates. Maybe when I get enough written Thai down good I'll change over to Thai language interface pack and actually understand it!

Best Regards, Andrew
