MUI.exe not working

Hi, experts. I have a bunch of laptops friends have shipped to me, and we're giving them to some kids down here in Mexico.  A number of the laptops have XP pro, and I've installed mui.exe on them. But although I chose Spanish as the language when I did the setup, the laptops still aren't showing Spanish. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    What Service Pack you have installed? I would suggest to get SP3 installed over this XP Pro, and then you try out. There are certain updates which get released through the SP's regularly.

    Service Pack 3 -
    MUI Service Pack -

    Thanks, I will try that!

    OK, I downloaded and installed those, plus two updates that were on the CD I have. My expectation would be that once everything is installed and I've rebooted, everything such as my computer, and the control panel, would be in Spanish. Am I expecting something that won't happen?

    Or should I reinstall the MUI after I've installed the updates? Thanks!

    Ohh I see...Microsoft has Work Instruction on this.

    Have you set the language from Control Panel as Spanish? Refer the link above. Try it and confirm.

    That worked this time, with all the service packs installed! I'm very excited, thanks so much!
