CHANGECP.EXE:
CHANGING THE CODE PAGE FOR CONSOLE APPLICATIONS

You can use the Regional Settings option in Control Panel to change the
locale, but this will affect only the display in Windows-based applications.
For MS-DOS-based applications and for the MS-DOS prompt, the code page
installed during Setup is always used. Windows 95 does not include any
feature that allows you to change the code page used by MS-DOS.

You can use CHANGECP.EXE to change the code page used for MS-DOS-based
applications and the MS-DOS prompt. This application makes all the changes
for fonts and other system elements in the Registry and other configuration
files.

CHANGECP is useful to you if your site uses an alternate character set other
than the default code page the Windows 95 Setup uses. You know that you need
an alternate code page if, after installing Windows 95, your MS-DOS-based
applications do not display properly -- specifically, if the wrong fonts
appear or the wrong characters appear as you type.

For example, the default code page installed for French Canadian under
Windows 95 is 850, but your site might use code page 863 as a standard. As
another example, the United States default is 437, but some companies choose
to use code page 850. In these cases, use CHANGECP to install the alternate
code page.

IMPORTANT: The CHANGECP utility is not designed to be used for changing code
pages on a regular basis. Also, frequently switching the MS-DOS code page
will confuse users of MS-DOS-based applications.

To change the code page used for MS-DOS-based applications:

1. Copy CHANGECP.EXE and any other files in the CHANGECP directory to your
   local Windows directory.

2. At the command prompt, type:
    changecp 

3. Select the code page you want from the list that appears.

Alternately, if you know the code page that you want, you can type:
    changecp <code_page_number> 

CHANGECP automatically makes all related system changes. The next time you
start Windows 95, the new code page will be used for all MS-DOS sessions.


NOTES ON CHANGING THE CODE PAGE
The code page is an internal table that the operating system uses to relate
the keys on the keyboard to the characters displayed on the screen. Different
code pages provide support for the character sets and keyboard layouts used
in different countries.

When you install Windows 95, Setup checks the current system configuration
to determine the regional settings:

*  For Typical Setup, Windows 95 Setup automatically chooses the regional
   settings for the current system configuration, and then automatically
   installs the related code pages for Windows and MS-DOS based on the
   current configuration.

*  For Custom Setup, you can choose to specify alternate regional settings.
   Windows 95 Setup automatically installs the standard Windows and MS-DOS
   code pages for the regional settings selected.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.

  • Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.

Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
