    Language packs for some languages not available (yet)


    Hi there

    Some language packs aren't available yet - even on UPDATE the languages are removed.

    For example on W8.1 I had (scr shot 1)
    On W10 gives (scr shot 2).

    I suppose it's only a matter of waiting but I can't see if the language packs are all that different from 8.1

    (Office 2010 / 2007 work ok as they use a LIP (language Interface Pack) instead of a full Windows display language.

    Cheers

    Hmm, I actually removed a lot of language packs from add or remove Windows features. I thought it would reduce the installation footprint, but I guess there were not many present as my Windows 10 occupies 19 GB of space with only ESET security suit installed.

    At the moment there are no language packs available, in any language. Windows 8 / 8.1 language packs are not compatible.

    Seems that I have to repeat this:

    Language Components in Add Features is at the moment a non-working useless feature. Although supposedly installing / uninstalling something when languages are selected and unselected it does in fact nothing.

    Input languages (keyboard layouts) can be added from Language preferences as in Windows 8 / 8.1, there's at the moment absolutely no need nor reason to add any Language Components. These componets really do not add language packs.
