[help] displaying east-asian characters

hi guys .. really need ur help ..
as u can see i'm new to this forum and new to windows 7 ..

and i been googled around for whole week .. trying everything .. and my windows still show those east-asian characters as "boxes"

i think this is the right forum to get the right help .. hehehe

this is the list i already tried ..
1. changing the system locale to chinese PRC
2. downloading chinese/korea/japanese language packs
3. downloading chinese fonts
4. unhide the fonts
5. and few others method i found googling around

really pissed off right now .. why microsoft makes it so difficult just to display east-asian characters .. when i'm using xp .. its so much simpler ..

i don't need to type those characters .. hell . i don't even know how to read korean or japanese .. hehe

i just want it to properly displayed when i'm playing korean song or surfing to chinese site ..

anyway .. big thanks in advance ..

If you just want to see the characters, then use Google Translate;

Google Translate

Chinese translation of the above.

It will also translate any site for you.

Not likely, he already wrote that he can't read it.

Also, if you use something like this, and are then unable to read the results, you will end up having to re-install your system.

You can do it, and I have actually done something similar for some Chinese friends here in Germany, but it took me ages to get it working, and it still did not work on everything, so it is probably far more trouble than it is worth for you.

If you really want I can check my notes and try to give you some instructions, but I can't guarantee that it will work.

Can you tell me what languages you normally view these things in?

OK. I will have a look through my notes and see if I can do anything for you. It may take a while, they are on another machine, and I do not have direct access to that machine right now.

What software, ( editor, word processor etc), do you use for viewing these files?

Also, can you please give me a link to such a file?

If I launched the program (in this example, Winamp) via Microsoft Applocale with the desired display language setting, it got the names displaying properly.

I'd be interested in seeing that too, Mike.

I have it working pretty well in pe3 - but the english fonts aren't specially attractive as a result.
