Oops, I forgot to mention, you have to have language support installed on your box as well.

You can use Microsoft Forms 2.0 (they are part of Microsoft Office) with full Unicode support. There is some legal catch about this library and you can check this on

Second solution to get non-Western European characters on "normal" label is to change editor font type in VB environment (Tools->Options->Editor Format-> Font). If you change font to, for example, Courier New Central European and type (using some CE language) text with some non-Western characters and then assign caption:

Private Sub Form_Load()
Label1.Caption = "some Unicode text"
End Sub

this text will be correctly displayed.
