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?

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.

They may have just placed the wrong files in the download area but I am interested in knowing the outcome.  Please keep me posted.
