I'm using MiKTeX 2.9 on windows7. When compiling with pdflatex, I get the following warning from Babel (which is discussed elsewhere
Package babel Warning: No hyphenation patterns were loaded for (babel) the language `German' (babel) I will use the patterns loaded for \language=0 instead.
The suggestions elsewhere (and in the MiKTeX manual) say to use MiKTeX Options (mo.exe, I assume), to update the language.
When I use mo.exe, I navigate to the language tab and click on the language I want.
The response I get is:
"This language is not yet available"

Above is a screenshot from my system. Languages which are not present do not have check marks in their corresponding buttons. When I click on a button - any button, I get the message box.
I assume that the screenshot below (from Speravir) shows how this dialog normally functions:

How do I make a language available?
First, I attempted updating my "
language.dat" file. But then, I noticed this gets updated (silently) whenever I update the fndb via mo.exe. The update simply overwrites any edits with an empty file.
So, editing the file is pointless (and something I know I shouldn't be doing since it's under the texmf directory tree).
Second, following Ulrike's suggestion in a comment below, I've reviewed the file 'languages.dat' in the miktex config directory. (The first line says "Do not edit" - there's no clue on how it gets generated, or how to edit.) The languages I want at this moment (english, german, french) do not have an 'exclude' attribute. In fact, the entries are as follows:
[english] attributes= ... [french] attributes= ... [german] attributes=
all other languages have:
Does a different attribute tell mo.exe to enable the button for a language? How do I set it?
