Download Rupee Symbol update for Windows 7

Posted by

Last year Indian Government released a unique symbol for Indian currency ‘Rupee’, every one started using the symbol in all fields and even keyboards are released with the symbol. We itself implemented Rupee symbol (RS)on Techno360, but the Rupee symbol has not been integrated into any operating system.

However Ubuntu 10.10 was the first OS to have Indian Rupee Symbol and now Microsoft released a Hotfix update (KB 2496898)to support the new currency symbol for the Indian Rupee in Windows Vista, in Windows Server 2008, in Windows 7 and in Windows Server 2008 R2. This update includes font support, locale changes, and keyboard support.


To apply this update, you must be running one of the following operating systems:

  • Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2)
  • Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 (SP2)
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
