In Windows XP, users are suggested to change the System Locale (Languages for non-unicode programs) settings in order to execute any legacy (code-page based) application other than the default Windows language.

For procedures to change the System Locale, users can refer to the example "How to setup Windows XP to PURE ENGLISH environment?".

Besides, Microsoft provides an alternative solution, "The Microsoft AppLocale Utility", for users to run legacy applications even without same System Locale setup on Windows XP. Please refer to the link "The Microsoft AppLocale Utility" for details and download.Please note that this application is a temporary solution distributed "as is", with no obligations or technical support from Microsoft Corporation.
