Is your XP in Arabic?

by dawgit In reply to DOS OPERATING - ARABIC ...

That could be one problem. In some software programs / applications the Base OS (here XP) must be the same language.
example: I also use WinXP, one system is in German (as I'm in Germany) there are many programs that are made to run only in English, they will not run on that machine, so I use a second machine with XP in English (international actually) for those programs.
Also many programs look to the OS language at install time to asertain which language to use for the default interface. (and will only use that one even if the program itself is multi-language.)
Is the WinXP you're using XP-Pro.?
I would suggest that you use XP-Pro (multi- or International version) set up in Arabic. See if your program works that way.
(If not let us know...) -d

edited to add: You could do that also with out disturbing the present set-up, by useing a Virtual Machine set-up or install as a second OS. (Dual-boot)

It won't work

by abahou In reply to Is your XP in Arabic?

I faced same problem...This nafitha is old and stupid..but we need it somehow. Anyways... even in Win98 it will not work, you had to go and Restart in Ms-Dos mode. So basically It's either you use a boot disk or install Win98 along with XP if possible...I am going to try it now!

HELP ON ARABIC NAFITHA

by ven_gonzales In reply to DOS OPERATING - ARABIC ...

hi, i'm writing to you as a desperate resort to my problem on ARABIC NAFITHA.

i searched the internet but i haven't found any answer to my problem. this has been my problem for several weeks now. i saw your forum regarding the ARABIC NAFITHA and i am hoping that you could help me on this.

i am a new programmer to a company that's still using the ARABIC NAFITHA in one of their old systems. this is my first time to handle any system that uses the NAFITHA. my problem is in the printing of the report that should display the arabic characters and should be in the right to left direction. i can convert characters to arabic when i'm inside the system (after running NAFITHA) however, when i print the reports which should be in arabic, the characters that appear are entirely different. one of the old guys there said that those were not arabic and were somewhat hierogliphics, characters were printed from left to right. and one thing more the numbers were also not converted to arabic but still in the "english" form. my company is using the EPSON LQ2180 printer on a windows 98 OS.

hope you can help me to configure the printer/system to print the desired output.

thank you very much. hoping for your response on this.
