Cant install any UI

Hello,

So, im trying install some uis but i can not.
When i select a skin all the colors from the uis remove and some "grey boxes" show like this..

The grey boxes appear when files are missing. This most likely means you have somehow installed the skin in a wrong way (haven't extracted all the files in their designated places for example).

Make sure all the files from the skin you're trying to use are extracted as the skin author has instructed. Generally you have to extract the files in
  • XP: <drive>:\\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\UI\Skins\
  • Vista/7: <drive>:\\Users\<username>\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\UI\Skins\
Some skins might also be outdated and not work any longer. Which skins are you trying to use ?

Alright. Then I know the skins you're trying should work properly.

The current downloadables I have uploaded are compressed with RAR (not ZIP any longer). In some cases the the extracting software might be outdated and corrupt the files. Try using the latest WinRAR for example (http://www.rarlab.com/).

Ok i found what was the problem
This might sound funny but i got an answer after searching at google finding an old post of me here at this forum(3.5years ago..), about the exactly problem this one
At my laptop i got windows Greek edition and for some reason Lotro doesnt load the ui corrently
so i have to rename the systems files(my documents) to english.

Hahah good thing you happened to found out your own old post because I haven't heard about that bug before, and oddly enough it still exists even that Frosty have answered the thread years ago.
