After doing a PC system restore and downloading the language patches it still is not able to read chinese characters. I do not want to change my language of the computer to chinese. Does anyone know any other patches I can download to fix this problem.
In general, you cannnot change the language of your Windows installation, i.e., English Windows is English Windows. However, English version of Windows XP Professional will allow the user to change the language of the interface you see by installing Multi-lingual User Interface (MUI), but the underlying language of the operating system is still English. Installing MUI is not the same as a localized version of Windows in your chosen language.
If you want to read Chinese characters and have Chinese program support (albeit may not be 100%), you could try configuring your computer this way.http://www.mesquire.com/faq/computer/winxpcht/setup.htm
If you want to install MUI, this is not available as a free download or as a retail addon, but through OEM and corporate licensing channels.
