Windows MUI/LIP Knowledge Center

All your answers are here.

What is the difference between LIP and MUI?

The main difference is in the level of localization in comparison to MUI packages: LIP packages provide the desktop user with an approximately 80% localized user experience. In addition, LIP doesn't allow users to switch languages. Once a LIP is installed, all users using that machine will have the same User Interface (UI) language.

LIP relies on the same resource-loading technology MUI is built upon, and installs on top of the English version of Windows XP Professional (in most cases).

When we are staging equipment for various markets MUI is critical for us. LIP is a lot more overhead. MUI has more features and is far more user friendly. Currently we are staging machines in different markets like China, Puerto Rico, Thailand, Czech Rep., Poland, the list goes on. We need to be more versatile with our interfaces.

No, MUIs can be installed in any language supported within the MUI.
