    1. Unfortunatly, your best bet is to contact the vendor.

    2. You may need someone who can read Chinese, but if the OS supports the language that you want to use, then there would be an option to change it in the control panel and/or the system tray.

    3. The same way you would on any other Windows system.  But the exe must be for Windows CE and the processor that the minibook has.
