French Computer to English

  B.J. 22:53 08 Jul 04

We live in France and have recently bought a new computer with Windows XP. Until now we have used Windows 98SE. To add to our confusion, all of the instructions are now in french, as you would expect! The computer came preloaded with XP and my question is, can we configure it to english or do we need the XP disk?

The French version is a separate product. Not sure how you go about installing the English version over the French version though. Interesting topic for discussion.

Doesn't it have regional and language options in the control panel?

Altered all settings in set-up to english configuration, but still gives instructions in french.

You need an English version.
