    it’s a very important package. Thanks Microsoft

  2. Pepper says:

    Well I can’t actually read the download page because I don’t read Hindi. But I have some coworkers who would find this useful. So I downloaded it and tried to install. Wrong architecture it says. Any idea when x64 is coming?

  3. Rob Margel says:

    Hi Pepper – let me see if I can get you an answer on x64

    Hi, what about the catalan windows 7 LIP?

    Will be there an x64 version? For Vista there was only a x86 version …

  5. Rob Margel says:

    Hi Josep – i cannot comment on future plans / timelines  for other LIPs sorry.

  6. Rob Margel says:

    Hi Pepper I have an official answer to 64 bit

    “We are only releasing 32-bit LIPs via the download center.  The 64-bit LIP for Hindi (and Catalan) will be available from OEM and System Builder channels”

    hope that helps somewhat

    Well thanks for the info, though it doesn’t make any sense at all. I checked the system builder site, oem.microsoft.com doesn’t have any LIPs for Win7/2008R2 yet, and no 64-bit LIPs for Vista.

    I thought Microsoft wanted people to use 64-bit but inexplicable policies like this aren’t helping.

  8. Rob Margel says:

    Hi Pepper – I have passed on your feedback and will try and get a response for you

    Still wondering about this, thanks!

  10. Rob Margel says:

    hi Pepper – sorry I don’t have any more information at this time on your questions/issues

    feel free to contact me directlty on robmar@microsoft.com

    Hi Rob, and thanks for your explanation. But, don’t you though it doesn’m make any sense? I mean "The 64-bit LIP for Hindi (and Catalan) will be available from OEM and System Builder channels".

    If there’s a x64 LIP for catalan and hindi languages, why to keep them private? Nonsense! Microsoft made it, and does not allow normal users to use it. I can’t believe it!

    Microsoft wants people to increase the x64 OS, but policies like that are incomprehensible..

  12. Rob Margel says:

    Hi Josep – thats great feedback that has already gone to the LIP team, and I wil make sure they get it from you as well.

    Rob

  13. Josep says:

    Thank you again for your answer, hope LIP team’s gonna listen to that feedback and made them public 🙂   If they made it that way, please tell us "asap"!

  14. Rob Margel says:

    Hi Josep – as soon as I know anything that has changed I will let you know

    feel free to drop me your email address
