This computer was working fine before a hard drive crash. After reinstalling Win XP Pro, recovering all documents from the backup drive, and reinstalling PM7, 7.01 and 7.01a, it won't open a file with a Russian file name. If I change the file name to English, the file opens and Russian text in the file is intact. I also cannot save a file with a Russian file name.
Here is a screen shot: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zlts9f17b7j31b0/3.pdf
I have enabled Russian in the Regional and Language settings, and enabled Russian in Microsoft Office.
I have set Russian as the default input language.
As a test, I downloaded a trial of InDesign C6 to see if it would open the pmd files - it also couldn't open the files "missing plug-in" or something.
Since this was working before the disk crash, there must be some setting somewhere that will resolve this. I would greatly appreciate any help on this. There are over 1,000 files like this, and it will be a real pain to have to rename them all in English.
After further investigation, it's not enough to change the filename to English. I have to make a copy of the file, change the copy's filename to English, then open it in Notepad, close it, and then it will open in PM.
This is getting more weird by the day....
