English Language XP Home edition wanted

  golfpro 15:54 16 May 2006

My computer has a German language version of XP Home installed, I would like to install (clean) an English version.
Which version should I be looking for??? I will be in the UK in one week, and will buy then.

I think that if you walk into somewhere like PC World and ask for XP Home you would find it is the English version. You can always ask to check.

I think he is trying to find a build version, however if an SP2 version is purchased it can be updated from Windows update to the most recent.

Have you tried Regional and Language Options in Control Panel?

That's exactly what I am talking about. There are more than one or two versions of Windows XP on the market, I just don't want to buy the wrong one. I've got no chance of going back to the shop for an exchange.

That doesn't change the menu language.

Am I right in thinking you can download uk option from M/S site or is the just the office languages options bit ?

Sorry was not aware, perhaps its all the same thing but released on different dates and all can be updated, as comp came with XP it's something I have never had to look for. I should imagine the latest version would be available at computer stores, but even this would probably require an update.

Look on the Amazon UK web site for softwear, XP Home, and you will see what I mean!!!

If you download it from a German version of microsoft.com you should be able to select English.
