Vistalizator for Windows 7 Review

Vistalizator For Windows 7 SP1 Adds Launguage Pack (MUI) To Any Edition

Vistalizator lets you add any language pack mui to any edition of Windows 7 including Windows 7 SP1, Windows 7 Starter Edition and Windows 7 Home Basic.

The Multilingual Language Pack (MUI) can be installed on Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows 7 Enterprise editions only. For example if you have Windows 7 Starter edition or Windows 7 Home Basic edition, you will not be able to install the language pack and Windows will only run with the default language pack installed with Windows.

Vistalizator for Windows 7 SP1

There is a third party software called Vistalizator. Vistalizator can install the MUI language packs even on the non-supported Windows operating systems like Windows 7 Starter and Windows 7 Home Basic. Vistalizator can also be used with Windows Vista. Vistalizator gets rid of the one language pack restriction of the non-supported Operating Systems. You can install your favorite language pack with Vistalizator. Some features are listed here:

  • Works in 32-bit and 64-bit Windows Vista/Windows 7
  • Change Windows display language in less than 5 minutes! (Express installation mode)
  • Uses official Microsoft Windows language packs
  • You can install all 36 MUI languages and switch between them easily
  • You can install 55 Vista LIP languages on top of specific MUI languages
  • Compatible with Vista Service Pack 1 and Vista Service Pack 2
  • User Account Control (UAC) compliant – prompts for administrative privileges
  • Windows Speech Recognition works with all supported languages:
    Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese and Spanish
  • Languages can be installed either in Internal or in Express mode

How to use Vistalizator for Windows 7 SP1

  • Download Vistalizator from here
  • Download MUI language pack of your choice here.
  • Run Vistalizator and load the language packs that you have downloaded in the previous step
  • Press Add languages button
  • Wait for the installation process to complete and accept to change the display language
  • Restart the computer after changing the MUI language
  • Now Windows will start in the language that you have installed.

I think Vistalizator tool is very helpful for those who want to work in languages other than English which is the default language of Windows 7. What are your experiences about this Vistalizator tool? Use it and let me know through comments.

      How?? My netbook is running window 7 starter and the dafault language is French, i install both the French and Chinese language and it works just fine…(however, only one language can be installed in internal mode, other languages have to be installed in expressed modes)

      1. Usman Khurshid Avatar

        Windows 7 Starter does not support multiple language packs by design. You must have installed Language Interface Packs which are a subset of full language packs.

    hello. I have a WIndows 7 Home Premum Service Pack 1, can I use Vistalizator?

  9. Naine Avatar

    Hi, I have a Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1, 64 bits. Can I used Vistalizator to change the language?

    1. Usman Avatar

      @Naine: Yes you can use Vistalizator on your Windows 7 Home Premium because it overrides the limit of one MUI in non-ultimate editions of Windows 7.

    If you have SP1 installed, you can find a solution (for both 32/64 bit versions of Windows 7) here: [link without useful comment not allowed]

    i tried it during installation i get this error message“Sorry, the internal installation failed! As this an experimetal feature, success is not garanteed. You can always use express installation mode instead.”

    plz help

    1. Usman Khurshid Avatar

      We have already discussed this error here. You can use the express installation mode as the error suggests. This will make sure the installation is successful.

    Dont work on Seven Ultimate x64 Build 7601…:(

    1. Usman Khurshid Avatar

      @edu: I have the same edition of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and Vistalizator is working for me. You only need to select the correct 64-bit language pack for your computer.

  16. edu Avatar

    @Usman Khurshid: tks for your reply but when i download the vistalizator and run show me a message box that the vistalizator dont work in this Windows version.

    1. Usman Khurshid Avatar

      @edu: You may try to run the downloaded language pack directly without using Vistalizator. Hopefully it will install as the Ultimate edition does not have any restriction over installation of additional language packs.

    I can not install the vistalizator 2.4 on win 7 starter edition.. any ideea?

    “unable to use this version of Windows 7. this build (7601) is not suported.”
    thx

  18. Han Avatar

    baba, I resolved this problem: right click on Vistalizator -Properties-Compatibility-Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows 7,i suppose you’re running Windows 7 Service pack1-this creates problems.

  19. Fab Avatar

    @Han: Thank you so much! This works perfectly.

    I choose internal mode, and it failed to install any MUI lang-pack.
    So, I installed MUI lang-pack using express mode for arabic and french instead.

    My question is, which is better for long-term use, express or internal mode in Vistalizator?

  21. game avatar Avatar

    i can confirm that the Vistalizator,product version 2.40 works on W7 Vistalizator Sp1 along with “windows6.1-kb972813-x64-en-us_483a3e51038f1a369bc5b5cdf5fc32df3ea4ad27″ version of language pack.
    I just changed the OS language from French to English. One thing thoughm the Vistalizator has to be set in “Properties” to W7 compatibility mode and when adding language should be done in Express mode (you’ll see when it happens)

    I tried setting it to compatability with windows 7 (I’m on 7 home prem) and I’m still getting the failed message. Why.? D:

    Hi. I recently bought a Lenovo 15.6inchLaptop/ CPU:Celeron Dual-Core B820/1.7GHz/ 2 Core Memory:4GB/ HDD:320GB/ OS:Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP1, and the OS was in Japanese. I downloaded Vistalizator and the MUI English Language Pack – but instead of clicking on the MUI for Windows 7 64 SP1, I clicked and downloaded the MUI for Windows 7 64 RTM. The English language pack was installed but when I clicked on “Change Language” in Vistalizator, I got an error message saying something like “this language pack in incompatible with your computer specs”, or something to that effect. Then I realized that I had not downloaded the SP1 pack. So I tried to first un-install the English pack that was already installed but I keep getting “uninstallation failed”, even after several attempts of restarting the laptop. And the OS remains in Japanese. So I installed the SP1 English pack anyway. I then click on “Change Language” and I get the instruction to “Exit program to restart the system and the changes will take place”. Even after the computer exits and restarts on its own, the language hasnt changed. But the Vistalizator window shows that both English and Japanese language packs are installed. I am worried about uninstalling the Japanese language pack.
    What should I do??

    1. Usman Khurshid Avatar

      How you are uninstalling the additional language pack? Here’s the complete step by step guide on how to uninstall language packs from Windows 7. Just make sure you are uninstalling the additional language pack first and then reinstall it to change languages:
      http://support.microsoft.com/kb/972813

      The additional language pack in your case will be English!

    2. Usman Khurshid Avatar

      Another thing that should be considered is that you can not remove the default system language. So you will not be able to uninstall the Japanese language pack even if you have installed the English one. The best thing to do here is just install the English language pack and change the language to English. Leave the Japanese language pack as it is.

      Sorry for so many broken replies. You can also uninstall the language pack in Windows 7 by using LPKSETUP command. Here’s the complete step by step instructions:

    I have windows 7 home premium sp3 can i change language ?

    Do NOT use this method if you don’t want to corrupt your genuine copy of windows. This program overwrites certain windows core files which then make Windows non-genuine and prevent you from updating amongst other things!

    1. Usman Khurshid Avatar

      Can you specify which core files are being overwritten by this software? Did you get your Windows non-genuine using this method?
