Language Pack Installation

Microsoft Windows XP

I'm using Windows XP Professional which came pre-installed with the laptop I've got when it was purchased.

I want to view a Chinese website and this requires a Chinese language pack to be installed. When I click 'Install', a dialogue appears and it says "The file 'cplexe.exe' on Windows Professional Service Pack 1 CD is needed.

The laptop did not come with any Windows XP installation CD and I could not find the above required file anywhere in my laptop. I couldn't install the language pack. Where and how can I get hold of the file 'cplexe.exe'

In the first place, I thought Windows XP supports multi-languages?
You will need a Windows XP Pro CD in order to install East Asian language files on your computer.
If you did not receive a CD with your PC, contact your PC Mfg's support department and request one.

1. Open XP's "Help and Support" program.
2. In the Search box type in: CHINESE , and hit enter.
3. Click on the task titled: "Install East Asian language files".
