hi all, i am Chinese and located in China,i using Console2 every day.
i found a problem:
if i have some files that name include Unicode Character,then i type 'dir' command,will display some invalid character.
how to resolve this problem?
BTW,how to attach a file?
when in problem,type 'cls' command,everything restore.
Please read the section Running Console -> Language settings in the Console 2 help file.
There are some steps you need to perform manually in order to enable support for complex scripts (like Chinese)
hi Marko Bozikovic,i do something according language settings in help file, but i can not open property window by right click on console window.
You have to follow the steps exactly.
If you are referring to step 3 in the help file, you need to start Console, unhide the real Windows console window (go to View->Console window), and then left-click on Windows console window icon to open its menu. There you can access Windows console properties.
even i right-click on console windows or left-click on console window icon, i can left-click on properties menu,but nothing opened.
If you open regular cmd.exe, can you open its properties?
yes i can open properties windows in regular cmd.exe window.
And you are unable to open properties in the cmd.exe window that you unhide from Console?
yes, i am unable to open properties in the cmd.exe window that i unhide from Console,
but i can open properties in the cmd.exe window that i run cmd.exe command in start-->run dialog box.
but in console window, Unicode can display correct .
I can replicate this problem as well. Unicode language is set to Chinese (PRC), and I have followed all other steps, but the properties window on the console window does not appear. :(
I tried all the steps, but the properties windows on the cmd window does not appear...
I found that installing the following registry file simply fixes the problem. (There were more registry values added when I update the Windows console properties, but they were safe to delete.)
Perhaps Console2 could update the registry by itself when it starts up? Then we won't need the complicated 3 steps anymore. :)
The registry file has been confirmed to work in Windows Vista x64. I guess it will also work in Windows XP or later versions.
Please ping me when the new version with the suggested fix (i.e. self registry update on startup) is released. I will delete the file. Just for the record, here's the content of the registry file:
-------- CODE BEGINS --------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console\Console2 command window]
-------- CODE ENDS --------
