    Upgrade To Windows 10 Crossed language


    Hi,

    Is there a way to Upgrade from Windows 8.1 (Spanish) to Windows 10 (English) Keeping Programs, Apps And Files?

    Is there any registry entry o file to change to english and bypass language check to keep program configurations in the upgrade?

    It is not possible. A Windows upgrade can only be made with same bit (x86 or x64) and same language version.

    Yes, in theory, but touching some keys on the registry or replacing dlls, it must be possible

    Let's make one more try:

    It's not possible!
