Vista MUI installation problem

Hi. I am really struggling here. Tried to install Windows Vista Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI). Tried to do this for about 6 hours now. I have everything downloaded and set up. however i keep getting the parameter is incorrect error message.

What is a no space in folder? i simply created a foloder like the one below. c:\MUITools\ i understand that no space means that it should not be like c:\MUI Tools\ with a space between MUI and Tools right?

However i do not have any spaces and i am getting the parameter incorrect message. I tried re-doing this several times and same issue.

Any help would be great.

Thank you. Rivertin

C:\MUITools\ or C:\MUI\ folder (Important: No space in folder name else will have ?Incorrect Parameters? or ?Parameter is incorrect? error message).

The page you linked to discusses using an illegal hack to use MUIs on Vista Home/Business editions. Unless you have Vista Ultimate or Vista Enterprise the usage of MUIs is not permitted and this discussion must be closed.
