comment Windows XP: Cannot activate East Asian language support
Finally got around to checking this out again and yeah, that was it (might be good to put that up in the answer). Lesson of the day: locking parts of a GUI without obvious reasons is shitty design. I'm beginning to lean towards the school of thought that says keep everything unlocked all the time and show an error when the user does something they're not allowed to and tell them why

Except it's not checked and grayed out.

The page you've liked to describes issues with finding the files, which I can only assume happens after activating the checkbox. But maybe the files can be installed manually; I'll have to look into that.

My problem is that I cannot even start the process of installing the files because the checkbox is disabled. The model is an Asus Eee PC 904HD.

How could that possibly help? My problem is not that configuration changes I've made aren't having an effect, the problem is that the checkbox I need to check is deactivated / grayed out.
