For Ultimate & Enterprise Windows 7, it seems like they have MUI packages that take care of this, and one can download by going to Windows Update through the start menu.

Mine was Professional Edition, so here are the steps I took (I don’t know the exact steps that make it work, but the combination should do fine).

– in your font folder, you can see font settings to your left of the window. click that, and then uncheck the “hide font based on language settings” box.

– right clicking on the Ming Liu fonts in C:\Windows\fonts and choosing “Show” or “Display” (or whatever word is in your locale)

– Deleting your Font Cache File: C:\Windows\System32\FNTCACHE.DAT

– Restart

Cross fingers :).
