Enable double byte characters at the OS level.




Good to know Jon thanks , this is what I found:


Configuring Windows to use double-byte languages.

Configure Windows for double-byte character support

To configure Windows for double-byte character support:


1.    From the Start menu, select Control Panel, Regional and Language Options.

2.    From the drop-down menu in the Regional Options tab, select the language you would like Windows to support, and click Apply.

3.    In the Languages tab, select Install files for complex script and right-to-left languages (including Thai), or Install files for East Asian languages, depending on the language you would like Windows to support.

4.    Click Apply, OK.
