I'm trying to add a language (Russian) to a users Windows 7 Pro 64bit sp1 7601 (originally in French)

I can't find the language options in Windows Updates (even after update search)

I downloaded a language pack for MS Office 2016 and that installed properly

But I can't find a language pack to enable the Russian characters/alphabet in Windows

I downloaded language pack but the installation doesn't run

I tried with Vistalizator to install the language pack but get an error at the en of the installation

I don't want to obtain a Russian Windows environment, just a Windows that can display and type Russian characters, and provide
spellchecking in Office apps

Any ideas please ?
