        The WinFX language packs contain translated text, such as error messages, for languages other than English. Installation of a language pack is not required to run WinFX resources on a non-English operating system; however, it is recommended.

        Important: To install the WinFX Language Pack, you need to first install the WinFX Runtime Components February CTP - and then install the Language Pack.

        Note: An English WinFX language pack is not available because all text is in English by default. To download a specific language pack, select the target language from the change language drop-down.
