Cause

This problem occurs because the Internet Explorer 7 version must match the base language of the computer's operating system. Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 is localized by using the Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI). Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 uses English as the base language. Therefore, you can install only an English version of Internet Explorer 7.
