In Microsoft Windows XP Starter Edition, the embedded resource version of the Language Interface Pack (LIP) Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI) files is incorrect. The embedded resource version incorrectly corresponds to Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1). When you install a software update such as a hotfix or service pack, the version of the base DLL is updated. When this occurs, the embedded resource in the corresponding Windows XP Starter Edition MUI file will no longer load.
