Here's the problem. I just had Windows XP Professional SP3 installed. It's the original English version, but there's a Russian person in the house who would want her account to be in Russian. And here's where the fun starts. We don't have the CDs, we got our OS from my mom's work that just gives you one download, one key punch-in, and everything else is pretty much your own problem. I'm not even sure about how that whole thing works, but bottom line is we can't get the MUI Pack from the CD like I presume Microsoft had it in mind.
Previously, we had the same OS, but it started off from SP2, which as far as I understand had the MUI in it from the start, but SP3 doesn't have that. Obviously none of the MUI pack updates work because they require the SP2 MUI pack that we do not possess.
Is there any way at all to get any kind of Language pack for our OS? I've been researching for days and can't seem to find a solution. Yes, I realize buying a new OS would solve it all, but that's not an option at the moment. I also realize that various torrents or whatever they're called will probably let you download just about anything, but I'm looking for a legal solution for the problem or else we're just gonna have to deal.
I'd appreciate any relevant ideas you might have.
Thanks in advance.
