Running an application with different non-unicode settings

Question: Running an application with different non-unicode settings

Dear forumers,

I have an issue with a non-unicode program. I want to learn to type the Russian standard keyboard layout (ЙЦУКЕН) so have an application which teaches me called Anykey 1.02 Demo. The problem is that this is not a fully unicode application and since my system is not set to russian at Control Panel -> Regional Settings -> Advanced tab, Anykey won't display cyrillic letters correctly, it shows questionmarks instead. Of course, it'd be simple to just set up the system run non-unicode applications in Russian, but it also messes up everything (another non-unicode apps). It's not really comfortable to restart the system every time I want to practice by Anykey, so I'm asking if there's any way to run an application (only one, separately from the other) with different non-unicode settings (eg. a command or *.manifest file or sg.)?

Thanks for your help

Preferred Solution: Running an application with different non-unicode settings

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,
We have one application (Chinese), which requires system locale to be changed from English to Chinese.
Is it possible to change System Locale (Language for non-unicode programs) with a script/GPO etc? OS is Windows 7 64-bit.
Thank you already for help.

Answer:Changing system locale for non-unicode supported application

Hello everybody,
I managed to resolve how to change System Locale (and other Regional Settings) without user interaction.
First, create XML file like this. Save this to c:\temp or where ever you like:
<gs:GlobalizationServices xmlns:gs="urn:longhornGlobalizationUnattend">

<!--User List-->

<gs:UserList>
<gs:User UserID="Current" CopySettingsToDefaultUserAcct="true"/>
</gs:UserList>

<!-- This sets system locale to China -->
<gs:SystemLocale Name="zh-CN" />
</gs:GlobalizationServices>
 
Next, execute following command with admin privileges:
control.exe intl.cpl,,/f:"c:\temp\locale.xml"
After restart, my System Locale was changed for all users to Chinise (Simplified, PRC)
Thanks everyone for help!

I have English OS installed, but I sometimes need to read Korean characters. If I change the non-unicode settings to Korean in 'Regional and Language Options' I need to restart. Also, this has the effect of running some games and installers in Korean.
Is it possible in either XP or Vista, to have 2 seperate user accounts, each with different non-unicode settings? I want to simply switch user accounts rather than having to restart every time.
I've tried but I can't figure it out.

Installed a chinese application earlier called Kuwo Music Player. I have been using this particular application for quite some time and today is the first occasion where I decided to give it a go on Windows 10 too. Then came the problem, I realised that the settings to change the system locale ( this is necessary otherwise the chinese characters cannot be displayed) is no longer where it was in Windows 7/8. I too couldn't find any helpful results on the Internet. So hopefully someone knows where I can find and change that setting, or any other working solution would do. Thanks in advance.

Recently for a game I'm trying to play I am required to change my non-unicode settings to Korean language. I installed the eastern asian languages and then went to the advanced tab but when I try to change the non-unicode settings to either Korean, Japanese, or Chinese it gives me an error stating that "Setup is unable to install the chosen locale. Please contact your system Administrator".

I am using Windows XP Professional SP2 and I just reformatted thinking that might fix it but it still is not working...I don't have much experience in this area but could it be anything to do with something set in my registry not allowed me to change it? Just a wild guess but I read somewhere about it and they mentioned the registry but I was unable to find any ways to fix this problem...

Thanks in advance.

edit : There apparently is a way to change it in the registry though when I look at all the numbers that represent languages a bunch of them are blank where it tells which dll controls them...maybe this might be part of the problem?

I don't care if it's 20MB, or even as much as 100MB, but, I really need a good truely unicode font that even supports the console stuff... Basically that means it includes the basic ASCII characters in a compatible way with consoles (in particular, the plain cmd prompt) and it has to be monospaced.

Sorry, I don't know where else to ask such a thing, but, it's driving me crazy that the best things I can find are stuff like Arial Unicode. I never find one that's actually a good console font AND unicode, only fonts that are one or the other.

there is no unicode on windows 10 help please and paint it black.

Answer:UNICODE PROBLEM no unicode.....

You don't seem to understand what Unicode is.






Unicode is a computing industry standard for the consistent encoding, representation, and handling of text expressed in most of the world's writing systems.



Windows fully supports Unicode, and it isn't something that can be removed from the operating system.
What error are you receiving and when?

What makes you think you have a problem with "no Unicode"?

Hi Ewa,
It's just a example instead of your real ID.

Answer:clearing one drive application settings from PC

When you update to the cloud (which is what One drive is), it normally defaults to the primary user, which I assume is your wife.
If you want your own cloud use try using a Gmail account and Gmail Drive.

Hello, I'm using a combination of the Vista backup to do a complete backup of my OS and applications (for emergency restore) and another backup tool to handle my data.

My OS is on C: and my data on D: (and other drives).

My query is that C: will contain application settings/data - for example if I write actions in Photoshop they will be stored under the user application data subdirectory or if I create a DOT template for Word it will be stored under the hidden data directories for Word.

I want to be sure that I am backing up all of the vital application data/settings so that I can either restore just those or in an emergency can restore my full Vista backup (done weekly) and then restore the application data (which I want to backup daily).

I've searched this set of forums and elsewhere to find something that lists which subdirectory tree(s) I need to ensure that I have backed up (and I guess I'll need to do a registry backup too each day just in case settings are stored there). I can't find such a list.

Does anyone know of a document that details what the vital stuff to backup is?

Thanks.

Answer:Application data/settings backup

If you need to backup Photoshop, you need to find it's directory (probably under Adobe), and for Word it's probably under Microsoft or Office. Another option is to simply backup the entire AppData folder, that way you can't miss anything.

If you're talking about a large-scale backup for your whole system, you will probably want to backup drivers as well (you only need to back these up once, all the drivers are installed in C:\swsetup, but I prefer just saving the installer files).

I reinstalled my OS multiple times, with my personal data on another drive. What I backed up from my C drive was:

Select folders from AppData (only for programs' settings that I wanted to backup)Fonts that I had collected over time (C:\Windows\Fonts)Themes that I had collected over time (C:\Windows\Resources\Themes)Custom Power Plans (exported/imported through powercfg.exe in command prompt)Start Menu folder, for lots of links I created (AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu - Private Profile, C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu - Public Profile)Certain folders in Program Files of older programs that I run as Administrator for compatibility purposes (programs that need Administrator privileges to save stuff in Program Files)I did not backup the registry in anyway, because the registry changes I made were saved as .reg files. Other registry changes are made while installing programs (which after a clean install will be done anyway)
What you think is vital to backup depends on your s... Read more

Greetings,
  We applied some UAC settings via Group Policy to all Windows 7 machines. Now some old applications are throwing up a prompt and the users normal credentials wont run the app. The point is that the app DID NOT require admin privileges before we applied
the settings. The users were able to launch the app without prompts and run it successfully.
  Does anyone know which security or UAC setting may be causing this? Remember that the apps ran perfectly well before these settings were applied  without an administrative account.
Thanks

Hello,

I am using a custom windows 7 theme that uses my preferred combination of window color choices etc.

However, this color scheme does become an inconvenience when I am working in certain applications like Autodesk and Photoshop as it makes their respective UI's very obscure.

Is there a way to exempt certain applications from personalization settings?

Thanks,
Mongol

Answer:How to exempt an application from personalization settings

Welcome to the Seven Forums
You are going to get that with a custom theme and some programs look just fine while others do not. You will need to either find a new custom theme or switch to the default Aero theme when using those programs.

I have a problem in that a few applications arent remebering their settings each time I restart my pc (win xp pro sp2). For instance, in outlook i went into email account settings and selected to leave email on the server. I go back after a reboot and see that it is no longer set. Also, i had set winamp to dock in minimised mode to top of the screen but when i reboot it appears undocked half way down the screen. Anyone any ideas why? I'm suspicious there is one windows settings file for all apps that should be saving these settings but isn't doing its job?

An Ontario Housing site will not allow me to log in. It requires the application number (which I have) and my password (which I have lost). Neither "forgot your password?" or "Log In" are clickable and
a popup notifies me that I need: IE 5 or above (I have 10); pop-ups enabled (I have allowed this); Active Scripting enabled (Options > Security > Custom > Scripting > Active scripting > Enable) and cookies enabled (I tried both Accept All and Medium).

Tried Firefox -same problem as IE.

What else can I try?

edit: I have IE 11, not 10.

Answer:can't access important online application despite settings - IE 10

Hi,
This is usually a sign the site does not recognize ie10 using compatibility view,
The easiest is to notice if you see the Broken page icon the address bar is Blue which means it's activated,
Gray is not activated,

Otherwise to force a change hit the F12 key click on Browser mode and switch to ie10,
The page will auto refresh after,
