How To Change The Default Language For Windows 7 Logon Screen

First of all, if you run a Windows 7 version that doesn’t support multi-language you won’t be able to use the Multilingual User Interface (MUI) functionality to change the default language for Windows 7 welcome screen. Unfortunately, MUIs are only available in Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise edition.

Basically, you are able to change that only when the Keyboards and Languages tab in Region and Language setting looks like below.


To change the default language on welcome screen

Go to Administrative tab in Region and Language window, which can be launched from Control Panel, and click on Copy settings button.


You will see what the current language settings on Current user, Welcome screen, and New user account.


To make the default language setting on Welcome screen the same as your current user account, simply check the option “Welcome screen and system accounts” at the bottom.


Click OK to save the setting, and reboot the computer for the change to take effect.

You must use the Role Management Tool to install or configure Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5

While trying to install Visual Studio 2008 on a Windows 2008 R2 machine you may get the following error.

You must use the Role Management Tool to install or configure Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.

This is because Windows 2008 R2 ships with the .NET 3.5.1 framework. You just need to enable the feature from Server Manager.


So before starting the Visual Studio 2008 Setup install the .NET Framework 3.5.1 Features from the Add Features Wizard in Server Manager.

After that when you run the Visual Studio 2008 Setup, the installer will detect that the 3.5 framework is already installed and skip to the next step.
