Does anyone have an idea when the IE8 MUI for Windows XP is going to be released?
I'm really looking forward to distribute IE8 on our campus but we depend on the MUI.

Hi Nik,
this is more or less the same as with IE7.
You can extract the necessary files from the IE8 package of the needed MUI language.

Here is a batch file, which does it for the german IE8.

IE8-WindowsXP-x86-DEU.exe /x:.\files

IF NOT EXIST "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Program Files\Internet Explorer\de-de\" MD "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Program Files\Internet Explorer\de-de\"
IF NOT EXIST "%SYSTEMROOT%\Help\MUI\407\" MD %SYSTEMROOT%\Help\MUI\407\
IF NOT EXIST "%SYSTEMROOT%\inf\iem\407\" MD %SYSTEMROOT%\inf\iem\407\
IF NOT EXIST "%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\de-de\" MD %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\de-de\

MOVE /Y .\files\hmmapi.dll.mui "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Program Files\Internet Explorer\de-de\"
MOVE /Y .\files\iedvtool.dll.mui "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Program Files\Internet Explorer\de-de\"
MOVE /Y .\files\iexplore.exe.mui "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Program Files\Internet Explorer\de-de\"
MOVE /Y .\files\jsdebuggeride.dll.mui "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Program Files\Internet Explorer\de-de\"
MOVE /Y .\files\jsprofilercore.dll.mui "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Program Files\Internet Explorer\de-de\"
MOVE /Y .\files\jsprofilerui.dll.mui "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Program Files\Internet Explorer\de-de\"

MOVE /Y .\files\*.chm %SYSTEMROOT%\Help\MUI\0407\
MOVE /Y .\files\*.iem %SYSTEMROOT%\inf\iem\0407\
MOVE /Y .\files\*.mui %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\de-de\


With this info, one could create a MUI-package pretty easy.
But this should have been done by MS in time. The beta phase was long enough to integrate the MUI packages into the build system.
Especially with a package as easy as this.
