My wife has a Vista Home Premium laptop she bought in France. I purchased a WIN7 upgrade for this computer, however when I run it I get the message, "You can't do a typical upgrade using an installation disc that's different from the language installed on your computer."

Is there a way I can change the installation language? My searches have thus far indicated that I'm stuck with the originally installed language.
