View Kanji in Visual Studio 6 Source Code Editor on Win2K
Posted on 2004-08-06
I got some Japanese source code that I am working on in Visual Studio 6 on Win2K. The code contains some comments written in Japanese. However, the Visual Studio source code editor does not display the kanji correct, it's all a big mess that even effects soem parts of the code since the editor sometimes cannot interprete the end of a Japanese comment correctly.
Here is what I've tried so far:
- Installed Japanese language support for Win2K
- Switched the Windows locale to Japanese (this should affect only date and time settings, so it was a useless try)
Any ideas how to display the Japanese comments?
To avoid misunderstandings (just in case): I do NOT want to write a programm that supports Japanese. I want to VIEW source code that has some Japanese comments in it.
