it's codepage 949 isn't it? See this Windows Codepage 949
See character 005c in the table!
Searching in Unicode character names for 005C it should be the backslash.

The command prompt uses the font built in the codepage. We found it!!!

Regedit, goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\CodePage
Post the pane on the right side. First scroll down so I can see ACP, OEMCP and OEMHAL

In registry goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Nls\CodePage and change OEMCP from 949 to 437

Reboot machine, open command prompt.
Code:
chcp
codepage is indeed 437 now? \ displays fine?

It says this. Any guesses why?
EDIT: I changed users and the regedit changed fine, but it's still coming up as 949 on the command prompt.

Command prompt displays \ fine now?

35 Language OS or just inputting?
Does the 35 language capacity of Ultimate allow one to shift OSs into another language system (say Japanese) to run software that does not run on the default English system? Or is it just inputting, which is something XP had from the start? And if it allows the OS shift, is a reboot always...
