Default (Win XP issue): I've got a "yen" I don't want.

If this is the wrong place to ask this, please move it, sorry...

OK, so the last time I set up a PC to use Japanese programs, it was on a Win 98 system.

So I go to do it on my XP system. Made sure the language files were installed (they were already), then went to that Advanced tab in Regional and Language Options, and set up the "Language for Non Unicode programs" thingy to Japanese then restart the system...

So, stuff runs fine that way so far, but I noticed that when I go to see the properties of any file, the slashes denoting the directories are all replaced with "yen" symbols.

Is this normal? Cos it seems odd to me. Is there some way to fix that?

Thanks for the answer and the suggestion.

Before I even think of trying that out, tho, can I ask...am I reading this whole thing right? Is the point of this thing that it only needs to setup the application in question once, and you don't have to bother with it again and run it like everything else, as long as the proper language files (etc.) are already installed?

No, with AppLocale it deals with all the languages. It doesn't "translate it", so to speak, it just makes it so your PC knows how to execute it like it should.

Yah, sorry, should have been more elaborate, I meant "if I run this program to set up a Japanese program (etc.) once, I wouldn't have to do anything special to run it after that?"

You'd still need to run it using Applocale.
