    Windows 8 Release Preview - language pack


    Just installed Win 8 Release Preview to my VMware.
    All appear to be fine except..... Language pack.

    When I had the Win 8 Consumer Preview , language pack included Chinese Simplified but not Chinese Traditional.
    Now with the Release, Chinese Simplified is not available either.
    What gives ?

    Oh, I get it.
    Do I have to create a new VM machine and install the Chinese Simplified or Traditional Windows 8 iso ?
