East Aian Language Input Problem

  shiretoko 13:09 17 Nov 2006

Any East Asian people who have the same prob as me?? When I try to install files for East Asian language via control panel, the message tells me to insert XP Pro SP2. When I do so, it tried to copy files from D:\i386 but the copy action freezes with message saying 'WIndows Setup could not copy the appropriate files'. I bought Mesh computer and all of my friends who bought Dell, IBM etc could install the language without any problem... Is there anybody who knows how to solve this problem?? Mesh told me that their XP is OEM version and suggested that I should get retail version of XP. But I do know think it is right. Any thoughts???

Sorry, I don't really know, but maybe Microsoft have the files you require on their site somewhere. Try sending them an email explaining your problem, I have always found them extreamly helpful.

Hope this helps.

Just wondering if it would work if you borrowed the disc from one of your friends who successfully installed?

Thank you for all the suggestions. Very kind. I did borrow my friend's CD but it did not work. I spoke to Microsoft re this prob but they told me to go to the maker of my computer (ie Mesh). Maybe e-mail might give me a kinder response. What is the best e-mail address of Microsoft regarding this kind of problem?? If you know pls let me know. Thank you again for all the help.
