Problem installing Simplified Chinese Language Pack on Windows 8 Pro

   I accidentally restarted my computer when it's in the middle of downloading/installing Simplified Chinese Language Pack.  Now I'm having problem installing that language.  Traditional Chinese Language Pack installed properly, but every time I tried to install the Simplified Chinese Language Pack, WIndows skips the download step and goes straight to the install step and after a few minutes said "failed".  I believe I have corrupted the download.  How do delete the downloaded files and have windows download the files when I do an install?

Anyone knows where does Windows 8 store the downloaded language pack files?


Refresh your PC and try again. You might have conflicting desktop apps that are causing the problem.

Here's what will happen:
  • Your files and personalization settings won't change.
  • Your PC settings will be changed back to their defaults.
  • Apps from Windows Store will be kept. However, the apps will be restored to their original factory condition as well.
  • Apps you installed from discs or websites will be removed.
  • A list of removed apps will be saved to your desktop. Try to find the app in the list that is causing the problem you're facing.
This will take a few minutes, and your PC will restart. Plug in your PC before you start.
