    W7 Unicode problem (CMD.exe)

    What to do to make the command prompt (CMD) display Unicode correctly (eg Russian names).
    Because it displays only "?????"

    Where?
    Inside the command prompt?
    Or do you intend in logs created by you with "output to file redirector" > ?
    In the latter case, you should run the command chcp 855 (Cyrillic - Russian) when you open a new command prompt.
    I think it also depends on how you set the language on your machines...

    The file or folder names contain Russian, Ukrainian, Belarusian, Chinese, Japanese, Norse and many other Unicode, what to do to support this mixture of this encoding?

    I'm afraid you must install the support for all languages in your OS.
    But this is just a guess.

    PS C:\Windows\system32> sp -t d HKCU:\Console CodePage 0xfde9
    Unfortunately, it still does not register all paths.

    Re: W7 Unicode problem (CMD.exe)

    Have you installed the W7 Language Packs?

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...language-packs

    I am not 100% positive that doing so will solve your problem, but it's worth a shot.

    It will not solve this problem (installing languages), but the correct solution is to change the font. But what a universal font for all Unicode (not only Russian) ???
