Citrix session displaying Chinese Characters in the view though database is housing Western Characters
Posted on 2006-11-30
I am asking this question to see if anyone else has seen a similar behaviour.
Basically the application I support is showing a strange behaviour through a citrix session. On the same PC that is running the citrix client, the application works fine outside of the session. Other machines running the same application through a citrix session will work ok.
This would imply that the issue IS citrix client related AND a change of configuration on the PC.
Now the behaviour is typing in text. When it is saved into the SQL database (2000 or 2005) and viewed again in the application, it appears to be in Chinese characters.
The database has been checked and the data is still as it should be (And doesn't support 2 byte character sets anyway).
Our application uses a codeset of 1252
The citrix client has been removed and different versions have been tried but to no avail.
It is only happening on field types of 'text' in SQL (varchars, integers etcetera are all fine)
I'm thinking it is related to the unicode and the codeset being changed with maybe another application install. But I do not know exactly. I do not know what config setting might of changed on the PC to affect this.
I know it is a long shot, but I thought I'd check if anyone else has had his experience or any ideas to resolve it short of a rebuild.
