    Hi,
    My laptop has XP with service pack 2 but the Indic language support
    (Install files for complex script and right-to-left languages) is not
    enabled. If I check the box, the XP disk is required but I don't have
    a functional disk drive in my laptop. Is there a way to copy the files
    from the service pack two? I downloaded the service pack 2 from
    Microsoft website but it seems it can't be extracted. I searched fro a
    source that allows download of this particular set of files but don't
    find any. What I need is support for Indian languages. Can somebody
    help?
    Thanks in advance,
    Cheng.

    If you have the service pack downloaded to your hard drive, you can expand
    it by adding a /x. For example, say the file is named SP2.exe. Open a
    command prompt in the folder you have SP2.exe downloaded and type in:

    sp2.exe /x c:/SP2

    This will expand the service pack to the SP2 folder on your C: drive. If the
    folder doesn't exist, it will be created for you. You may get a prompt to do
    so; I don't remember for sure if it just creates it or asks you if you want
    to create the folder.

    A lot of the files in the SP2 folder will be compressed with an extension
    such as ccd.dl_. These can be expanded using the expand command. From a
    command prompt, type expand /? and press enter for all the switches to use.
