Missing input language

Posted: 01-28-2009, 02:25 PM
About 6 months ago I upgraded a Netbook with Windows XP home to slipstreamed
Windows XP professional. During the slipstreaming process a number of elemnts
were removed including Keyboard layouts and text Input profilesfor a number
of languages which were not deemed applicable (in this case Greek). We have
subsequently started a new project which requires Greek input. How can I put
the Greek Input profile back into windows XP professional without
reinstalling windows?

Thanks John but I can find the DLLs for the Keyboard layout but I still
cannot add Greek as a Language. I have install the Greek Keyboard dll but can
only use it by selecting another language name and choosing the Greek
keyboard as the layout. However, since i associated German (Austria) with the
Greek Keyboard the Language r says "DE" instead of "GR"

hello, I had the same problem as u do, i only had a few languages to choose
from, needed hungarian that was missing
i found a solution, so im sharing it with you, hope it helps


1) Choose the file to re-install all missing BASIC languages

http://soporific.dsleague.com/files/...ages-to-XP.zip


2) extract the zip file contents onto the target machine that needs
languages restored. Inside ZIP file is only one file, a INF file, right-click
it and choose to INSTALL

3) files will start to copy over, then stop and ask you for a Source CD. You
can use ANY Windows XP disc -- simply use the Winborg DVD, or something else,
and point to a i386 folder. On the Winborg DVD, the best i386 folder to use
(there are 3) is the one at this location:

D:\z-OS\Standard\I386\

assuming your DVD drive is the letter D:

4) after its all finished, reboot, and you should be able to use all
Languages (actually all languages get re-installed)

PS: for me it only worked with a windows disc of Service Pack 2, couldnt
reinstall with SP3!
good luck
