This is exactly how your command propmt should look like for this to work

C:\Windows\System32\dism \online \add-package \packagepath:c:/"lp/lp.cab"

change the part in the parantheses to the folders the lp.cab file is in.

Your backslashes should be forward slashes (or you will get the Error: 87).

C:\Windows\System32\dism /online /add-package /packagepath:c:/lp/lp.cab

(I guesss somebody else already noticed and posted this, sorry).

Can anyone please help me out....I am using windows 7 professional, can I change it to a simplified Chinese language?? Please help, thx.

If you need the keyboard to type Chinese, without having to download anything, see if your Win& Pro already has Chinese. Go to Control Panel/Clock, Language, and Region/Region and Language/Change keyboards or other input methods. Go to the "Keyboards and Languages" tab, click "Change Keyboards..." button. Go to "General" tab and in the "Installed Services" section, click the "Add.." button. Select the Chinese language you want ie. Chinese (Simplified, PRC). Click OK. Your keyboard should now be ready for Chines input.

2. You can get your MUI LP here; http://www.winkeyfin...nguage-pack.php
Note: I download the en-us package on D:\lp.cab
3. After Download do you need the following to type in the CMD (Run As Administrator):
DISM /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:D:\lp.cab
bcdedit /set {current} locale en-US
bcdboot %WinDir% /l en-US

4. Remove from the Registry the ru-RU language settings (CMD->regedit.exe)

6. REBOOT the OS.
7. Enjoy the englishWindows 7 Professional.
