If you mean the Active IMM, you can install the Japanese lang support
provided by IE5 as well, as it does the same thing (installs a font and code
page support). In fact the cp files have more recent dates, I think.
In fact, the font it installs (MS Gothic) is generally considered to be more
attractive than the LangPack font (MS Mincho).
