Good afternoon to community. When you run older programs of Windows using non-Latin characters on English-language versions of Windows, they often appear to be garbled. A list of compatible apps can be found in the included documentation. However, it no longer works on Windows A separate x64 version may be available from Microsoft.

If the application fails to detect the language of the non-Unicode program, it allows you to specify the language before running it.
However, it can still be retrieved from the Internet Archive. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. It works, but with a few bugs. Since changing the locale normally applocae a restart of Windows, AppLocale is especially popular with western users of Asian applications.
Microsoft's 'temporary solution' tool called AppLocale is a program which helps you run non-Unicode programs without having to worry about the display of characters. Due to the work, I'm very often need to run non-unicode applications from other countries onto my work and home PC's.
The way AppLocale works is by bypassing the system locale and running as an emulator for versions of Windows which are not in English. Since Windows only allows one locale at a time and changing it requires a reboot and administrative rights, running a non-Unicode program can take a lot of time. Microsoft seems to have no idea how many people loved this tool.
Refer to the "System Requirements" section in the following link: Microsoft AppLocale can fix this in some situations. In reply to Hippo Seven's post on October 10, This workaround also works for Windows 8 and Windows 8.
HLMaier Replied on October 14, The program installs itself in a subfolder of the Windows directory called "AppPatch", and when launched prompts the user for an executable to run and the desired codepage. AppLocale is not included in normal retail versions of Windows, but mocrosoft available for free download from Microsoft's website. Installing in compatibility mode is a workaround and an application compatible with only Windows XP is not very likely to run on Windows In reply to Appplocale Singh's post on August 6, I'm again came, searching for solution.
Both applications not functioning properly even in compatibility mode.
If the application cannot detect the language of the non-Unicode application you are running, you can select a preferred language to emulate. If the app does not use Unicode encoding, the operating system needs to emulate the environment required to properly display the characters.
Did this solve your problem? It is a launcher application that makes it possible to run non- Unicode code page -based applications in a locale of the user's choice.

Sadly, it has been discontinued. The application is now discontinued and does not run on newer Windows. You can follow the question or vote as helpful, but you microskft reply to this thread.

Here we go, no reliable solution for win 10 after all.
