Windows XP East Asian Languages without CD

Print PDF

After surviving more than a year on my work computer where East Asian Languages are not by default installed (and thus I only see squares instead of e.g. Chinese words) I decided to do something about it. In Control Panel > Regional and Language Options the solution is just a tickbox away, the problem is that the Windows XP Installation Disk is usually needed to get the appropriate files. Unless these files are already save on the PC (usually in C:\I386 or similar). The obvious solution would have been bringing a Windows XP CD from home, which I regularly forgot... This page then did it.
