Works crashes when trying to print
 
Hi, a friend had a Win98 machine and Works 8.5. He bought a new machine with
Vista Home. When he opens up any spreadsheet created w/8.5, the font name
and font size show in Japanese. When he tries to print the doc, Works
crashes (just says there was an error trying to print, the program will now
close).

He bought the new version of Works but is getting the same behavior... any
ideas?

Thanks.

I doubt it is the version of Works since I have Works Suite 8.5 running
fine under VISTA.

I don't know how you check the language settings -- the PC doesn't have
a Japanese version of Windows on it does it? <g>

From what I understand, Vista comes with Japanese loaded on it.

VISTA Ultimate and Enterprise versions (but you say Home Premium) can
accept user addition of language modules but I was not aware that they
came with eg Japanese installed if you bought VISTA in the USA for
example.

Perhaps you can make something from this:

Windows Vista an ever expanding view of Internationalization

If you bought Windows Vista Ultimate, then all you need to do is load
the Japanese MUI language module. If you bought something other than
Windows Vista Ultimate, then first ...

http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/v...New_Vista.mspx

And how that compares with what it says within that article:

<< Display and creation of text in different languages:

The first thing Vista users will notice is that, out of the box, all
languages and scripts are enabled. No longer will they need to turn on
the support for East Asian languages (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean)
and Complex Script languages (Arabic, Hebrew, Indic, Thai, etc.) They
will just be there. >>

I shall watch with interest what others say about this.
