Installing Japanese version windows 10 then reverting to English version?

Question: Installing Japanese version windows 10 then reverting to English version?

I installed a Japanese version of windows 10 but then bought an English version and installed that after finding all the menus could not be changed to English during the install.
My question is does the English version overwrite the JP version or are files left on the SSD using up space?
Also in the end I returned the English version cause I found you can add a language pack to the JP version. The problem with this is that if you get a blue screen the Windows messages are in Japanese. So now unless I can change this I'm going to go back to an English version of Windows 10.
Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Installing Japanese version windows 10 then reverting to English version?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I recently moved from Australia to Japan and will buy a new PC soon, All the PC's the retailers here in Japan bundle the PC's with a Japanese version of Vista.

"Can I install an English version of Microsoft Windows Vista using the Japanese Microsoft Vista software that the retailer bundles with there PC's, or will I need to buy an English Version"? :confused

Also is there anything that I should be concerned about when buying a Japanese PC and using English?

Hello, I am considering to buy a Surface Pro 4. If I buy the English version of the machine and add the Japanese language pack, can I run the Japanese version of software? Will that be fully compatible? Some of the filenames are in Japanese. Same question but in the case of buying a Windows 10 installation disk and install it on a Mac running bootcamp.

What are the differences between English version of Windows 10 + Japanese language pack vs. Japanese version of Windows 10 ?

Hey petercohen8877,

It appears that this same question was posted before, in here. Have a look at THIS thread. There was some discussion, but I'm not sure it there was a clear answer or not.

Hi,
 
My new computer was given to me with Windows 7 Professional German version installed. I just want to overwrite it with my English Home Premium edition but do I need to format the drive first or remove the existing version? When I try to install it says the drive doesn't have enough space (because of the existing OS).

Answer:Help installing English version over German version

Two thoughts. The first is why don't you just try changing the language settings on your existing installation ?  As I remember, if you use a Windows repair disc the first thing you are asked is to choose your language and keyboard. You can get full instructions on how to create a Windows repair disc here :

No guarrantees it will work, but if it does it saves you a lot of work !
 
I have Win 7 Home Premium and the complete Windows folder is 27 Gb. This is quite a lot, but I am surprised that you are being told you don't have room to install it. I would expect any new laptop to have at least a 250 GB hard drive. But if you are determined to put Win 7 HP on your laptop, I think you are going to have to remove the Pro version first. Just back up any data you have on the computer before you start !

Hello;

Purchased a PC that was supposed to have English content. Turns-out certain apps are in Spanish, most of which I have been able to correct. My
biggest problem though is MS Internet Explorer 6. The browser is in Spanish, and while I was successfully able to download the English version, I get a program warning suggestion that while I could go ahead and install the IE6, I should remove the Spanish version first from "Add/Remove".

Since "Add/Remove" is part of the browser, it too is in Spanish.
When I go to remove the program, it doesn't offer the two options as its offered in the English version- "Remove or Cancel", but basically something that indicates (loose translation I think!) "Repair or " Replace" with a previous version (which I believe there was- in English, prior to the Spanish replacement but I'm not certain)

My question is, since there isn't a clear choice, should I attempt "Repair" or
"Restore-I don't want this to end-up a total reinstallation of W2K all because of a browser issue!

Any and all suggests would be genuinely appreciated- thank you!

Hi there

I bought a new Laptop here in Germany which comes, as you would expect, with a German version of Windows. I would prefer an English version though. It appears I'd have to update to Win Ultimate or Enterprise to be able to change the language which is quite expensive. However, I don't need the ability to change languages, I just want English.

So, I still have an unused English Win 7 license. Is there any way to convert my system from German to English using that license and keeping all the software that is already installed on my Computer?

Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks!

Answer:Possible to install English version over German version of Win 7?

You can call MS Customer Service to find this out for sure.

I think I'd shrink C in Disk Mgmt to install to a test partition to see if English will activate with your Product Key, as this can vary. If so then we can help you remove the old OS or hide it if ever needed again.
Partition or Volume - Shrink
Partition or Volume - Extend

Put your wireless adapter on a stick so you can get online to try activating. If not just delete the test partition in Disk Mgmt and extend C back over it.

Remember you can only have 4 Primary partitions or three Primary and unlimited Logical. If in doubt post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

I am buying a new PC in Spain but want Windows 7 Home Premium in English, which does not seem to be available anywhere here. So my techie guy is downloading an English version (pirate???) and at same time buying a genuine Spanish version. He says he will then use the key code from the Spanish pack to validate the English version.
Is this possible, and could I encounter any problems later? How can I be 100% sure (before I leave the shop!) that I have a validated, genuine English version of Windows 7 that will continue to work indefinitely?

I have read that the keys are language-version-specific. Others may know for sure.

Here is how to doublecheck validation before leaving the shop. Ask for the Spanish pack key insert. Run Attachment 39526 and scroll down to see the installed keys on machine: compare audit's Windows 7 key to the key your shop provided given on package insert.

Now go to Start>right click Computer>Properties and scroll down to confirm Windows is activated.

Be sure to keep the Spanish package key insert with the paperwork from your shop. Ask for a DVD copy of the Windows 7 installer to use for reinstalls or repairs.

I built a new pc a month ago and have been running Win7 RC1 on it for the time being. Obviously Win7 is coming out next week so I am getting ready to purchase the full version. I could buy the Retail version of Win7 Home Premium 64-bit for $199, or the System Builders version for $99 on newegg.

Can anybody go ahead and buy the System Builders version, or is that restricted to actual pc resellers? Would newegg ask me for a resellers license or something if I try to order it? I built the pc, don't need MS support for it, and will only ever use that copy of Win7 on that pc. I just hate spending twice as much money for the Retail version if legally I can buy and use the System Builders version for half the price. Or am I better off paying more money for the Retail version?

Also, if I can buy the System Builders version, I assume it will come with the install dvd as well as install key? Plus, with that, I can install that copy on just this pc as many times as I want without limitations, correct? Meaning, I usually format and reload windows on a pc twice a year so over 4-5 years I will be reinstalling that copy of windows on the same pc 8-10 approx over the years.
 

Answer:Buying full version of Windows7: Retail version or System Builders version?

Anyone can buy an OEM license. They're cheaper because they don't include Microsoft support. You are your support. OEM licenses are tied to the hardware on which they're installed. Technically you are prohibited from installing an OEM copy on a completely different system, though many people will do this and successfully activate their copy by saying their motherboard failed and had to be replaced, etc.

Every time I try to replace a particular file with a newer version Vista swaps it for the previous version, even if the previous version was deleted first.

It is not a system file, it is an Access database.
It is located in a subfolder of Program Files.
The folder was created and is owned by me.
I am an administrator of the local machine.

The original file was placed there using Explorer.
The master version of this file is kept on a server.
Every time I try to copy the latest version of this file into the local folder the operation appears to work.
But when I open the copy I find I?m looking at the previous version.

If I delete the local file it stays deleted.
But as soon as I copy the newer file into the folder, back pops the original!
I?ve tried deleting the local file and copying the newer one to a different local folder.
The file copies fine ? it?s the latest version.
But when I move (not copy) the file into the target folder it reverts to the previous one!

I need to be able to update this file regularly on any Vista machine from each user?s login script.
If Vista wants to keep the file then why doesn?t it restore it if I delete it?

Background: This is a Dell laptop loaded with an OEM installation of Vista Ultimate SP1 and fully patched.

Answer:WIN anniversary update automatically reverting to old version

It seems your PC isn't shutting down properly. Try the following first:

Turn off Fast Startup if enabled since this can cause problemsCheck your drivers are up to date - particularly those for graphics, mouse & keyboard. Also check you have the latest BIOS from your PC/motherboard supplier which supports Windows 10Run sfc /scannow from an admin command prompt.
When you see that "restoring your previous version of Windows" screen try a cold restart. Turn off the PC at the mains or turn off the PSU switch on the rear of the PC, hold down the power on button for 30 secs then restore the power and turn on the PC. If you have laptop, you will need to remove the battery to have the same effect.

Described here. I have a problem with finishing work on "unknown device". For a moment, after installing from the DELL (www.dell.com/.../advanced) driver "ST Microelectronics Free Fall Sensor Driver ", file DRVR_WIN_R309372.EXE Device Manager has stopped showing that there is an" unknown device "in the configuration. After updating to "ST Microelectronics Free Fall Sensor Driver", the Chipset_Driver_RCHTX_WN_2.00.10.34_A11.EXE file, from the same DELL page, again appeared in the configuration unknown device.
I decided to remove the ST Microelectronics Free Fall Sensor Driver from the system via the Control Panel to install only DRVR_WIN_R309372.EXE. Unfortunately, the installation can not be resumed, the message "Found incompatible installation of, Version. Please uninstall it via Control Panel Add / Remove Programs before installing this version of Accelerometer". The problem is that Control Panel no longer shows this application. Suspecting that there were some traces left after the previous installation, I tried to remove them from the File Manager and also edited the registry. In the registry I searched for: "R309372", "RCHTX", "Microelectronics", "AccelerometerP11", "Freefall". I deleted the entries containing the above characters. I would be grateful for directional guidance on how to proceed further. I am using Windows 10 64 bit Dell Precision M4500.

I know that it's as simple as finding the "Microsoft Internet Explorer 9" update using the "uninstall" feature in the control panel.  I also know that after the uninstall run update to get the MS IE9 "update" and then hide it so it doesn't re-install.  
Microsoft's "How-To" says that it will revert to a previous version of IE!  I don't want IE at all so how do I stop this older version from installing and actually get rid of that one, and ALL IE versions as well?
This suggests that there is an older version lurking on the computer!  Just how many versions are loaded? 
I think it's rude of MS to install an older version without my say-so. 
Thanks!

Answer:How Do I Uninstall Internet Explorer WITHOUT Reverting to a Previous Version

You cannot eliminate Internet Explorer from Windows, it is integrated and components of it provide some of Windows' functions. The browser executable (iexplore.exe) can be renamed with a non-executable filename extension to prevent it from being accidentally run, but this will also prevent online MS updates.

I bought a pre-built desktop a little over a year ago. It cam with integrated graphics, an ATI Radeon 3000. I installed an HD 6670 shortly after. I now have a two monitor setup. I have my primary monitor hooked up to the 6670 and the secondary to the 3000. After updating CCC to 12.6 from 12.4 the second monitor isn't detected.

I've been going to device manager and uninstalling the 3000 drivers, then restarting, and my secondary monitor is detected, drivers auto install, and both work. Unfortunately when I check CCC it's back to 12.4.

Thanks in advance!

Answer:Catalyst Control Center keeps reverting back to older version?

You need to get rid of the old ccc registry values, driversweeper does a good job, I use that with ccleaner and it usually fixes those type of issues

Hi there
I'm confused with the W8 x-64 Enterprise TechNet versions - there's an ENGLISH version and a UNITED KINGDOM version -- what's the difference. Anybody got any ideas --AFAIK the official language of the UK is still English so why the different versions. What do I need to download.

Cheers

Answer:Technet W8 enterprise - English or UK version ???

There is no difference. It's just that the UK version is configured to use UK settings by default, rather than the US settings which we had in previous OSes (and which we had to manually change after installation and the creation of new User Accounts).

Hi all,

I recently purchased a new Dell desktop here in Japan, but as English is my native language I switched the display language to English. Unfortunately, many programs and menu screens have blocky and small fonts, as if there is no anti-aliasing or screen smoothing on.

These are fine:

These are not:

Some programs even have a mix:

I have googled around pretty extensively and the main solutions -- using the advanced system settings to adjust for best appearance, and adjusting ClearType text -- have had no effect. Graphics card drivers are all up to date.

My previous computer was an English-language machine bought with Windows 7 and upgraded to 10, and it had no such problems. The problem machine was bought in Japan as a Japanese-language machine, and I switched the display language to English soon after purchasing. I'm assuming that must have something to do with it but I can't find any definitive answers (maybe it's completely unrelated). The font problem is really grating in a few essential programs I use daily so I would love to find a fix.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

I am afraid you have misunderstood something. The seller probably wanted to say that Vista is also available on English language but you cannot preinstalled version switch to each favorite language.
If you want to have vista on English you must buy Microsoft original Vista installations DVD and make clean OS installation.

You will be not able to buy an English Recovery for this notebook model.
I assume you have purchased this notebook in Russia and therefore you?ve got a recovery disk with Russian language.

If you want to use a Vista in English language then you have to purchase a full English Vista version and then you could install it on your notebook.

There is also an Microsoft Vista language package which allows to change the OS language but this works only with Vista Ultimate version.
Your Vista seems to be a Home Premium and therefore this will not work!

The rest of the software can be downloaded from the european Toshiba website and there you can also find the installation instructions.

According to the comparison chart linked below, it appears you need to have Windows 7 ultimate in order to have that feature. I may be wrong.

I have the logicool k200 media keyboard and as I said it is the japanese version. It has 3 extra keys next to the space bar and the key left of 1 which tilde on a normal us keyboard also has japanese symbols on it. Also I used the lang bar after switching the keyboard layout to japanese to switch to kana. After doing this it did type kana symbols but they did not match the kana symbol on the key. I don`t know much japanese yet but I would like to be able to use my keyboard as designed so when I do want to type in japanese I can use the buttons on the keyboard to switch modes and also type the yen character.

2, Click 'Change keyboards' followed by 'Add'

A friend has a Dell laptop bought in Norway running Windows XP Home which defaults to the Norwegian language for menus and system messages.

I know there is no way to configure XP Home to change the OS to display in English, so i'm wondering whether her license key will work if I install an English XP Home edition?

Does the MS license cover this?

Many thanks
 

Answer:XP Home license key reinstall onto English ver from foreign lang version

Yes, yes, and yes.
Check out the regional settings in the control panel.

I reciently configured mine to display German and Japanese text easily.

Might take a bit of work for the menus and such though...
It may be easier to make a unattended CD, and re-install off that.

Hello !

I am an Indian, I purchased *"Toshiba Satellite L300-2CZ"* in France. I don't know French Language. I am an software guy.

One my family friend purchased it in on-line in 2009. It is good configuration but Bad-luck for me is, it contains *French keyboard and French Windows Vista*.
Anybody know how to solve this problem?

I am facing lot of problems while while writing software code by using this Frech keyboard because we use English- Qwerty keyboard.
*And Is it possible to install Toshiba's Windows-Vista -English version on it.*

I installed generic Win-Vista home edition on it , it is working but there is lot drivers missing, So I am not able to use my Laptop at minimum.
*Could you give me some information/suggestion to solve my problem.*

Thank you,

Answer:How to Install Win Vista -English Version on my Toshiba Satellite L300-2CZ

It's not a problem to dowload all drivers needed either from Toshiba support sites or other good places.
You need at least Chipset+Audio+Video+Network+Wireless drivers and (maybe) some additional like Touchpad, Quick buttons, Bluetooth, Web camera.

In rare cases you can google drivers for unknown device (or just recognise it) through vendor/product IDs in device manager (VID_xxxx&PID_yyyy string in device properties).

Problem with keyboard is simple (in most cases): buy keyboard stickers like this

It's not perfect solution but very cheap'n'fast.
Alternative solutions are laser engraved letters on your keyboard or new english keyboard from Toshiba service (I can't even imagine its price).

Guess you can't install *Toshiba's* Vista other than bundled with your laptop. But you can buy any boxed version of Windows meets your requirements, even Windows 7. There is no difference between *Toshiba's* and boxed version of Windows exept license limits, so I advise you to think about boxed Win7.

Av-comparatives.org reports that qihoo 360 internet security has a good detection rate...

However, they used a weird version 5.0.0.5061 while the current stable version is 4.9.0.4902
So I have asked to av-comparatives of the Qihoo 360 internet security version number.
The Av-comparatives answered that Chinese version is used because qihoo requests to use Chinese version.

Here is email from av-comparatives
Hi,
Qihoo is a Chinese company and their Chinese version is used by hundred of millions of Chinese people, while the English version is used only by some thousand users. Qihoo wanted to have the Chinese version tested.
If you come across a report where Qihoo states that the English version was tested, please let us know by providing a link.
regards,
andreas​
I wonder there is any difference of detection rate between chinese vs. english version.
 

Answer:(Qihoo 360) Any difference in detection rate between English and Chinese version?

I noticed that too,Qihoo sends the Chinese program because it is a little more advanced, already the international version does not match!

You no longer need to spend hours performing tedious, complicated   re-installations when upgrading your PC. Take all the best from the   system you?re used to ? and simply move it to the new hard drive. The   operation requires no system restart and is completely safe for your   data. You can continue working on your computer until the migration is   over, and then ? your new hard disk is the exact duplicate of your old   one, with all your software ready to go.http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/
