To install East Asian language files on your computer
You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may also prevent you from completing this procedure.
- Open "Regional and Language Options" in "Control Panel."
- On the "Languages" tab, under "Supplemental language support," select the "Install files for East Asian Languages" check box.
- Click "OK" or "Apply."
- You will prompted to insert the Windows CD-ROM or point to a network location where the files are located.
- After the files are installed, you must restart your computer.
- To open "Regional and Language Options", click "Start", click "Control Panel", click "Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options", and then click "Regional and Language Options."
- The East Asian languages include Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. The files for most other languages are installed on your computer automatically by Windows.
- It is recommended that you install these files only if you are going to be entering or receiving text in one or more of these languages. The Chinese, Japanese, and Korean files require about 230 megabytes (MB) of space on your hard disk. In addition to the language files, Input Method Editors (IMEs) are installed for each of the three languages.
- After you install the East Asian language files on your computer's hard disk, you must add the individual languages for which you want to enter and display text. After you add a language, the language is loaded into memory every time you start your computer. For more information, click "Related Topics."
- To remove the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean files from your computer, clear the check box, and then click OK or Apply.

For Windows 2000 Professional and Windows Vista, please see the page on how to enable East Asian languages on Windows 2000 Professional and Windows Vista respectively, since the steps are somewhat different. Windows 95/98/Me/NT4 users have to download Asian language support and input editor files from Microsoft's Web site.
