    Japanese software compatibility under the English version


    Hello, I am considering to buy a Surface Pro 4. If I buy the English version of the machine and add the Japanese language pack, can I run the Japanese version of software? Will that be fully compatible? Some of the filenames are in Japanese. Same question but in the case of buying a Windows 10 installation disk and install it on a Mac running bootcamp.

    What are the differences between English version of Windows 10 + Japanese language pack vs. Japanese version of Windows 10 ?

    Hey petercohen8877,

    I was curious, so I did some checking.

    It appears that this same question was posted before, in here. Have a look at THIS thread. There was some discussion, but I'm not sure it there was a clear answer or not.
