Tablet PC user interface appears in English after you update to Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Symptoms
Some previously localized user interface and screen elements may change to the English language after you update your Tablet PC to Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005.
Cause
This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • The Microsoft Tablet PC Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI) and Recognizer Pack is installed.
  • The Regional and Language Options settings are set for a language other than English.
Windows XP SP2 does not include updated versions of the Tablet PC MUI files. Because these files are not included in the update, the Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 user interface will use the English version to display these elements.
Resolution
To resolve this problem, you must install the Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI).

The following file is available for download from the Microsoft Download Center:

More information
The Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 MUI Pack does not contain any handwriting recognition engines. If you want the updated handwriting recognition engines, you must install the Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 Recognizer Pack. This Recognizer Pack will be available for download in October 2004.
