Text file: can not read

Hi,

1) I have a client who has a text file
2) she got it from her friend in Japan
3) She tried to open it with Notepad, Microsoft Word, etc
- It can not be read
4) Is the text file itself bad?
5) Any idea or 2nd opinion for it?
6) Thanks

tjie

All the language packs for IE can be found here

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=507d4589-ca97-4c5a-9c0f-bb9a3c68cc49

at the bottom of the page it tells you how to install them


Also try this first - auto detection of languages (and hopefully encoding)

Check your regional settings to read other languages. and try opening.

Go into Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Languages > East Asian Languages and click to Install Files.

Hi,

try using command prompt to open the file. using
EDIT <filename> or TYPE <fileName>
the same can be append to another text file or print using Greater than (>) symbo.
Type fileName > DestinationFile

sounds like the encoding on the file, try opening it using something like internet explorer which should have more language packs installed

Notepad or Word should be able to read the text file if it infact is a text file format. Language for Japanese content or not, there should not be issues trying to open it so long as it is a text file. It appears that it is not. Find out what file type it is and thus you find out which program must be used to open it with.

Hi,

Rename the file extension into .EXE, and try to open, my suspect is for shipping the file they would have modified the extension.
