    We have a legacy application that uses vsprint8.ocx for printing. This application has been localized into Chinese and Japanese, however, Chinese/Japanese characters sent to vsprint8 are not displayed correctly (they show as “?”). The font has been set to an installed font that supports these characters.

    Does vsprint8 support printing with these character sets?

    Hi David,

    I am sorry but VSView does not support unicode characters.
