Hello all. So I just got a windows 7 computer. I had some games on my other harddrive, and now some wont work due to the japanese language not beign displayed.

But...how do you install that with windows 7?

EDIT: WTF...they want me to get Windows Ultimate? So I need to pay a couple hundred of dollars just to get some foreign scratches on my computer screen?
There has to be a way around this

First of all I can only tell you that ULTIMATE or ENTERPRISE will help you pretty much to get these games to work!
As far as I know it's only working on those 2 versions... (the method below)

However here is a small (but working) tutorial by me!

Go to Control Panel, then to Region And Language!
Click the Administrative tab, and then, under Language for non-Unicode programs, click Change system locale.
Set it to JAPAN!

RESTART your system!
Try to open the game DIRECTLY (through EXE)

Should be somewhere under "Region and Language". You only need Ultimate if you want your start menu etc. in Japanese.
