Download Windows 8 LIP (Language Packs)
« on: 15. August 2013., 17:05:31 »
I encountered a stubborn Win 8 machine that refused to install a (Dutch) Language pack. Unfortunately, there is no official microsoft link to download it manually. Only obscure languages seem to be supported ;p

Anyways, I found it hard to find a list of download links, so when I found a page... Well, I decided to share it here :)

http://www.gtkdb.de/index_27_2027.html (Windows 8 Multilingual User Interface Packs)
 
Gives a long nice list of languages to download :) Go to Run –> lpksetup
You will be taken to a window which will let you add the downloaded language pack of your choice.

If that site goes down, startpage.com for: kb2607607 nl (nl for Dutch; replace with your language). That should get you started again...

Help me help you! https://copy.com/?r=zOEhNk - Clear 15GB of cloud storage and... 

... karma for you :)

How To Manually Install Language Packs In Windows 8 (lp.cab Files)
Oct 1, 2012 By Usman Khurshid in Microsoft

Windows 8 language packs have not been released to the public officially. Since Windows 8 is only available to MSDN and TechNet subscribers, the language packs are also available for download to those subscribers. But Microsoft has made it quite easy to install a language pack in Windows 8. I have already written about 2 ways to install Windows 8 language packs. I have also given the download links for unofficial languages packs of Windows 8 which have been created using Windows 7 language packs.

The two methods that we have already discussed include using WDP Universal Language installer which can install any language pack which you have downloaded in Windows 8. It’s quite easy to use but if you want to do it without using any third party software, you may using the built in language pack installer which will automatically download and install any language for you. Just search for “Add a language” in Windows 8 and add language through the interface.

If you have downloaded the lp.cab language pack file on your computer, Windows 8 does not give any straight forward option to select the source language pack file to be installed.

There are two more ways to manually install a language pack in Windows 8 (only if you have downloaded the language pack in your computer).

Method 1: Using lpksetup command
Install or uninstall display languages

Go to Run –> lpksetup
You will be taken to a window which will let you add the language pack of your choice.
You will be required to restart the computer once the language pack is installed completely.
You may change your display language through Control Panel languages option.
Method 2: Using dism command
dism command

Open command prompt with administrative privileges.
Issue the following command
dism /online /add-package /packagepath:C:\downloads\Win8lang\ar-sa\lp.cab
You will need to change the path with the path of the cab file in your local computer.
Restart the computer when the command has been successfully completed.
Change the display language from the Control Panel.
I hope this will help the users who are trying to install Windows 8 language packs manually.
