64-bit (x64) MUI Language Packs for Windows Vista SP1 Unofficial Download Links

The Multilingual User Interface (MUI) language packs for Windows Vista SP1 hasn’t been released officially via Windows Update for public download yet, as the language packs for RTM version cannot be installed anymore. But Microsoft has made available the MUI language packs to MSDN and TechNet subscribers in DVD disc image in ISO format.

If you’re using Windows Vista Enterprise and Ultimate editions, you’re entitled to download and install MUIs according to EULA license terms to change the system display language. A few of the DVD ISO disc image for Windows Vista SP1 version of language packs have been leaked, such as 6001.18000.080118-1840_amd64fre_Client_LP_1-FRMCLPX1_DVD.iso, 6001.18000.080118-1840_amd64fre_Client_LP_5-FRMCLPX5_DVD.iso and 6001.18000.080118-1840_amd64fre_Client_LP_7-FRMCLPX5_DVD.iso.

    Update on Windows Vista 64 Sp1 not showing language throught windows update:

    I did have microsoft support that took my pc under remote and apparently there is a problem with windows update they ask me to wait until the wave 2 country language pack are released (end of april), It should solve the problem.

    Anyway great support from you and them, I guess I will just have to wait.

    Many thanks.

  • admin

    I don't have 64-bit system yet, probably wait for others to confirm.

  • Jeremie


    I did'nt install the SP1, It was already integrated into the Microsoft Vista Ultimate disc.

  • Jeremie

    I have Windows Vista 64 Ultimate with the SP1, Activated, Genuine.

  • admin

    Are you using Windows Vista Ultimate or Enterprise? Have you installed the service pack?

  • admin

    I think you should install SP1, and then install the newer MUI, as SP1 has been released. Anyway it's here:


  • Jeremie

    I did look on "My Digital Life" but I was unable to find it, can you help me to find it?

    Sorry to bother you,

    If you're using RTM version, then download the language packs for RTM version. Both is not inter-usable. Search for it at My Digital Life.

  • Jeremie

    It is the RTM Version I thinks. How to install extra language pack on that one?

    Many thanks for your prompt reply and great site.

  • admin

    Are you using Vista SP1 final or RTM version? This is for SP1 final only.

  • Jeremie
