There is still isn't any Chinese Language in the list of Input Language from the Language Bar Setting~ Though I can surf page that displayed in Chinese font properly, I just couldn't do Chinese Input..
and well the solution is to deal with the 'modified' culprit file: C:\WINDOWS\inf\intl.inf (it's like a configuration file that control the language local installation. )
so I believe the default intl.inf file has been tampered hence below are the steps that I have attempted:
- Backup the original intl.inf file
- Insert Windows XP CD, (search for the intl.inf) using Windows Search (F3) look in the CD for the cd copy of the intl.inf file.
- Overwrite the intl.inf (from the CD) to the C:\WINDOWS\inf\intl.inf (Windows Copy)
- Untick the Install Files for East Asian Language, restart, and Tick the Install Files for East Asian Language and restart again... then it works :D
|Finally Chinese (PRC) is available.|
*P/S: when installing the Files for East Asian Language, if it says cannot find the files just browse to the Windows CD directory it should be fine.
I have encountered case that it requires some kbd106.dll files that cannot be found in the CD, (and prompt me to browse for the files). After I used Search function to search for the files in the CD (find it locates inside the SP3.CAB cabinet file), I extracted those required .dll from the CD content to a directory, (ie Desktop, and from the prompt file dialog there browse to the directory contains extracted .dll files)
