    Add Language Pack in 8.1 using DISM error code 0x80070003


    Hi

    I am trying to change my language in windows 8.1 from Spanish to English using DISM.

    I have downloaded the language pack that I want to install and saved it to the root of my C Drive and renamed it to LP.mlc

    I know little about what I am doing! I tried the command in CMD prompt, "dism /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:C:\LP.mlc"

    I keep getting the above error code and it wont install. Please help!

    Hello and thanks!

    Yes I am able to change the language with no problems on my desktop which has Windows 8 Pro, however the laptop only has Windows 8 Single Language. This is why I am trying to do it offline using DISM.

    If you have Windows 8 Single Language version, you can't change your Windows 8 display language.

    Not in Control Panel, no. There are other ways to do it though.

    Yes that's right! I haven't followed the instructions on that link yet, it all looks pretty complicated tbh.
    What I have done is from an elevated command prompt tried to execute this:

    dism /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:C:\lp.cab
    dism /Online /Get-Packages > c:\file.txt
    dism /Online /Remove-Package /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Client-LanguagePack-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~ru-RU~6.3.9600.1638

    I downloaded the language pack and renamed it to lp.cab, then I tried to run the first dism command and got the error.

    I will have a good look at the info on your link and try to figure it out, I think I have to boot into the recovery console in order to run the commands.

    This is all new to me, so I will play around with it and post back.

    Thanks for link!
