I downloaded the IME from the following page.  But when I try to install it, the installer is written in Japanese or (Chinese) I can't tell the difference.  

Why is it doing this? I need an english install.

Etircet,

Could you tried this yourself.  I am not asking you to install it, just to begin running the install and see what language it is.

I think you should check that you do have all available service paks installed.
Which one of the files did you download?

I downloaded all three install files.  All of the installers are written in japanese.  I currently have service pack 2 for Office 2003 installed.

Sorry for the delay.
Yes, it does appear to be in Chines or Japanese.
You will need to call Microsoft support and speak to cusotmer support.
