Vistalizator Review

Felix Cheng

“Change the display language of any edition of Windows”

A review of Vistalizator by Felix Cheng

Vistalizator is a free and legal way to bypass the restrictions placed on your operating system by Microsoft whereby you are able to install and use different language packs on Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 for free.

Though the actual language packs aren't included with Vistalizator, they are freely available from Microsoft.

One of the times where Vistalizator comes in handy is when you purchase a laptop in a country where they don't speak your native language; in many cases, you are not given the ability to choose your keyboard layout or your system language because the version of Windows is more often than not Windows Home editions.

Highly recommended if you need to install a different language on Windows.

Vistalizator features and highlights:
  • No need to install this program, just run it
  • Supports 36 Vista/Windows 7 MUI languages
  • Supports Vista/Windows 7 LIP languages
  • List and download 32-bit Windows Vista LIP languages
  • List and download 32-bit Windows 7 LIP languages
  • List and download 64-bit Windows 7 LIP languages
  • Languages can be installed either in Internal or in Express mode, see below for details
  • Multiple languages can be installed in one go
  • Built-in conversion is used for MUI language packs in EXE format
  • Built-in file integrity validation is used when loading language packs (using MD5 checksum)
  • Changing to new/another MUI language is global for all users and requires system restart
  • Changing to another LIP language using the same MUI parent language requires current user to be logged off only
  • Different users can have different LIP language provided that the languages can use the same parent MUI language
  • Some troubleshooting command line parameters are available

Vistalizator is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from components without restrictions. Vistalizator is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
