Dear colleagues:

NEED HELP !!

Yesterday I made a mistake of downloading Global IME HKSCS (Hong Kong special characters) (I am not using Chinese Windows). Since then, even after deleting Global IME traditional and simplified, I am still not able to read the Chinese traditional characters. Before this big mess happened, I was able to right click, went to encoding, picked Chinese traditional, and read Chinese traditional characters. Now it\'s no longer the case. (The only thing I could see was black bars, instead of the characters.) I went to Microsoft\'s website for assistance but I couldn\'t find any!! Maybe someone can point to where I can go in the website or advise me of the solution(s).

Thanks a whole bunch in advance.

Try and Uninstall It Dec 13, 2002

Brenda,



Uninstall[ING] whatever was installed may help. [Start] -> [Settings] -> [Contol Panel] -> [Add or Remove Programs] -> Find the program -> Hit [Add/Remove]



I am not sure if it will work, but it won\'t hurt.



Yongmei Liu

I had already done what you suggested and it didn\'t work.

++++++++

Then, you need to put the two IMEs back in, I guess. (You should have uninstalled \"HKSCS Support\" ONLY.) Or take the machine to the shop.

You may need to re-install Windows Dec 14, 2002

Uninstalling Microsoft software can be notoriously difficult. You may have to re-install Windows.



I had the same problem before; I had Chinese-language enabling \"Richwin\" on my computer, and foolishly downloaded IME. It \"interfered\" with Richwin\'s functioning, particularly on the Web or in e-mail, when --- apparently --- the default switches to IME. I found, however, that I could get around this by:



1) Starting Richwin when I turned on my machine. This tends to \"override\" IME. Turning on Richwin or similar programs once IME has \"booted in\" is futile...



2) When there is a conflict, leave all programs, re-boot Richwin.



I\'m not a computer freak, but now I DO UNDERSTAND WHY SOME PEOPLE HATE MICROSOFT.

Thanks Yongmei, but ... Dec 14, 2002

I had already done what you suggested and it didn\'t work.

That\'s why I\'m very confused and I need all the help I can get.

Thanks very much for your suggestion, though!!

Any other suggestions?!

System Restore Dec 14, 2002

If you are running in Windows XP or ME, try to use System Restore by going to Help and Support > Undo changes to your computer with System Restore. Pick one restore point prior to the new software installed and run restore.



Hope it helps.

Speaking of input... Dec 15, 2002

Anybody know of a way (besides the system called \"Natural Input\", which seems to bring me coding problems) to get a Pinyin input for traditional characters? Sometimes I seem to get it but usually not, and I can\'t stand bopomofo.

试试江毅的汉王简 Dec 16, 2002

http://www.hanwj.com



I know it\'s quite good for 简体, and there are some coding bugs for 繁体. (For example, the full stop generated in 繁体 may not be exactly the same as the full stop under a Microsoft-sanctioned input method.)



Better yet:



What version of Windows do you use? If you use Windows 98 for Taiwan, there is a ready solution for you. Just get 微软新注音输入法98a and change the setting to 罗马拼音.

Thanks for the advice!! Dec 17, 2002

I\'m using Win2000 English version with the Microsoft GlobalIMEs for both Simplified and Traditional downloaded. The Simplified one works great with pinyin (obviously! ) but the Traditional one until now offers me only Zhuyin Fuhao (although I know the system, I can\'t deal with the keyboard layouts.)



I\'ll check out the links you\'ve posted and see if that helps. I\'m ready to throw the \"Natural Input Method\" (zi4ran2 shu1ru4 fa3) out the window. I think it\'s the reason why my input gets messed up a lot of time, including sometimes adding a whole bunch of garbage Chinese characters to posts. When I un-install it, things seem to go smoothly -- but I can\'t function in Taiwan without traditional characters, unfortunately...



Regards

Terry

You can use PinYin to input 繁體字 with Traditional Chinese \"New Phonetic\" input method, just like you use Simplified input mothod. The only difference is that New phonetic (新注音) allows only full spelling (全拼).



Here is the procedure:

Go to START > Control Panel > Regional Options.



Select \"Input Locales\" tab and then click on \"ADD\" button.



Under \"Input Locale\", select \"Chinese (Taiwan)\" and under \"Keyboard Layout\", select \"New Phonetic\" (新注音). After 新注音 is added, select it and click on \"IME settings\" button. This will open the property dialog box with several tab pages. Click on \"鍵盤輸入對應\" tab and select \"羅馬拼音\".



Then you can input 繁體字 using 漢語拼音 just as you would inputting 簡體字.



上面的這幾個繁體字就是這打達出來的。

簡單之極! Dec 30, 2002

Hi Terry,



如果您安裝了中文版 \"Windows Me 2000\",

您僅需要點擊 “微軟拼音輸入法“。然後,請 在 \"中\"字後面點擊 “繁”字,這樣,繁體字輸入便可大功告成了。



(我這幾天正在試用此輸入法,效果奇佳!)



Betty

It's not there! Jan 2, 2003

I am running English Win2000 Pro, and I don\'t have any \"New Phonetic\", just zhuyin for phonetic input choices. ;-( Can\'t find any of the settings you have pointed me to, unfortunately.

Try to find Chinese Windows Me, Jan 2, 2003

as Pinyin is much easier than Zhuyin.



Good luck!

Try downloading a new input system Jan 10, 2003

Hey Terry,



We meet again! But don\'t worry, I\'ll try not to stink up your territory here too much.



I think you can download the New Phonetic input system. Do a Google search for 更稬硁穝猔 and see if you can\'t dig it up.



Ciao



Dave M
