Locked Re: OneCore Voices Uninstalling themselves

Just a thought, as obviously I do not have a need for Japanese, but could there have been a windows update which has caused them to disappear?

Checked again, and although the voices are listed in the dropdown where
you can choose which voice narrator will use, the only installed
packages were English—United States and English—Australia. I reiterate,
how do I stop Windows from uninstalling these packages when my back is

A couple weeks ago, I installed the OneCore voices for Japanese and a few others, so I could use them in future. I had a bit of trouble getting them to stick around initially, but they seemed to cooperate, not disappearing after restarts. I just went and checked, though, and I'm back to only the voices for US English and Australian English.

Is there a way to stop Windows from removing these voices whenever I look away for too long?
