Language Display



I'm running XP Home atm and i was wondering if anyone knows how i can display chinese characters etc?

I know it can be done in XP cause a friend of mine has chinese characters showing correctly in Winamp (not the usual random ascii characters)

That and i have a few chinese programs which display the characters as random ascii.

I tried the Help file that comes with XP and to no avail. (and no my friend can't remember how he did it)



I'm not so sure whether Windows XP Home Edition supports for Mmultiple-language installations but Windows XP does. Anyway, just try and see how.

To display non-Unicode programs in their native language
You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may also prevent you from completing this procedure.

Open Regional and Language Options in Control Panel.
On the Advanced tab, under Language for non-Unicode programs, click the language version of non-Unicode programs that will be used(Chinese PRC).

Restart the computer, then anything is just fine.


oh bah

It displays the characters but now winamp won't play the song :( I've installed the language packs for winamp but to no avail

Thanks for the help though =)

If anyone knows how to solve this little niggling problem help would be appreciated =)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
