I just upgraded my computer to XP. I am having troubles using my Japanese dictionaries. All menu bars of my dictionaries appear \"Mojibake\". How can I fix this? Please somebody let me know how to view menu bars for my dictionaries in Japanese.

I am also having a trouble with my email too. The subject line turns into \"Mojibake\" if it is written in Japanese. I use microsoft outlook. I would really appreciate if someone can help me.

I think I might have a solution for you, but tell me which language version of XP you using.

Good website to show how to use Japanese in XP.

I am using XP too but have no problem.

You need to change

\"Regional and Language option\" in Control Panel.

I hope this helps.

Specify Japanese for non unicode programs Apr 13, 2003

In the Linguistic and regional options -> Advanced options (my translation of the French Windows XP menus, it may be a bit different), you can specify Japanese for your non unicode programs. I use a lot of Japanese programs on the French version of Windows XP, and there is no mojibake.
