Direct Download 36 Vista MUI From Windows Update Server

Update – All these direct download links listed here are only applicable to non-SP1 Windows Vista. Click here for the updated list of Vista SP1 MUI Pack direct download links.

Before there is Windows Vista Ultimate, e.g. Windows XP Pro, general home users hardly have chance to download and install multilingual user interface packages (a.k.a MUI pack).

The XP MUI is only sold through Volume Licensing programs – i.e. Microsoft Open License Program (MOLP / Open), Select, and Enterprise agreement, or with a new computer as an OEM version upon user’s request.
With Vista Ultimate, the MUI packs are available through Windows Update or Automatic Update. As of Oct 2007 (the “2nd phase” of Vista Ultimate Extras), Microsoft promises users the capability of running Windows Vista Ultimate in one of 36 available languages!

If for some reasons, such as Windows Update disabled, unreliable broadband connection, install MUI to more than 1 computer within SOHO network, etc, you can still access to the direct download link of these 36 Vista MUI packs (hosted at download.windowsupdate.com) from office network (or other reliable Internet connection).

P/S: All these MUI packs are supposed only released and installed to Vista Ultimate. (In fact, these are part of the Vista Ultimate Extras component to pursue end-users buying the pricy Ultimate edition!).

However, CityShaman leaved me comment that it’s possible to manually install the extracted components in non-Ultimate editions of Windows Vista too! Thank you CityShaman! (Anyway, I’ve not tried and proved it, as I’m using the pricy edition!)
