Codepage 850 - extended characters

By b.borror ·
Our 'bread & butter' application is a DOS protect mode program that runs okay in Win95/98/NT. We are multinational and used codepage 850 for extended character sets. Microsoft in it's vast wisdom uses it's own codepage resulting in ASC(157) not showing a Norwegien letter but a Yen currency symbol. Anybody worked around this?

Weeell there is a work around. Run the application from DOS mode. If you have the problem there too try installing the support for your language from control panel>keyboard. Best of luck
