* More recent versions of Windows have East Asian Languages support out of the box, but unfortunately Windows XP doesn’t have this functionality unless you install it. To see the Chinese characters on Windows XP you should install East Asian Languages support in XP. Todo so go to Control Panel and open the Regional and Language Options window. At the bottom of that window there’s a check box labeled “Install files for East Asian languages”. Click that check-box.
