    I installed this for French.

    Ran the program from the desktop.

    The place that said "change the interface language" was not selectable, because…. "you need the MUI installed".

    So, I installed the MUI. Or tried. "You don’t have the correct version of Office."

    I hate this kind of bullshit.
