    deploy asian languages pack via GPO

    I need to have the asian languages toolbar available on a load of laptops and Im trying to figure out a way to deploy it.. Cant seem to find a definitive answer.

    Also when I try to install it manually, the Languages toolbar displays for staff but not for students, could I have a GPO that is blocking the languages toolbar?

    The only way I can see to do it manually is to go to control panel, regions and languages, keyboards and languages, add chinese / japanese etc

    ah sorry i thought you wanted the ones installing you get from windows update. Im not sure how to do it to be honest. I have never had the need.

    right it looks like im going to need to enable the extra languages manually. Thats no problem. But for some reason once they are enabled I cannot get the language bar to show for student accounts.

    Im wondering what restriction might be stopping it from showing?

    DISM can be used to install a language pack in Windows 7...

    Code:
    DISM /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:X:\LangPacks\Windows6.1-KB2483139-x64-ja-JP.cab
    Language packs can be downloaded directly from Microsoft here or here (if you don't want to use Windows Update), but you will need to convert them into CABs first using this tool.



    I think the following registry key controls whether the language bar is displayed or hidden.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\LangBar]
    "ShowStatus"=dword:00000000

    I cant seem to get them to come in via windows update.. Windows 7 language packs are available for computers that are running Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Enterprise says that
    However, these language packs are not available on the Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server or through the Microsoft Download Center.
    which is why i might be struggling..

    Ill try your way just now, cheers!

    That message means you have to register on their forums.

    However, if you scroll further down that page you will find an alternative download link: www.mediafire.com/?ptwfj3d946shfe3

    Thanks, got the languages installed but it seems that even though it is set to show, the language bar does not show until I go into region and language, and change keyboards and manually add in the new language keyboards.

    Is there a way to automate the addition of new keyboards, and therefore make the languagebar appear?

    If you do a before and after comparison of the two registry keys below you should be able to find out what gets added to make the language bar appear.

    Code:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Preload]
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF]
    Out of interest, which languages are you trying to add, and do your students have the "Do not display custom toolbars in the taskbar" GPO setting enabled or disabled?

    Right Ive managed to find the right registry key that sets the keyboard which then enables the language bar.

    Problem is now students cant import that registry key... How can I make it a system wide setting rather than Current User?
