Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All Vietnamese session users                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Need Vietnamese code page 1130 session  *
    *                      to work in English locale               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    PCOM checks the Windows operating system locale to determine
    if Vietnamese host code page 1130 or 1164 can be used. If the
    system locale is English, the user can not configure a
    Vietnamese emulator session.
    

Problem conclusion

  • PCSCLIB.DLL, PCSPD.DLL and PCSWS.EXE have been changed to check
    the Vietnamese locale using the selected host code page (1130
    or 1164) instead of the Windows system locale.
    
    User needs to enable "VI" input method to allow Vietnamese
    characters when using host code page 1130 or 1164 under the
    English locale.
    
    Fix scheduled for PCOM 6.0.6 Refresh Pack
