I noticed that nobody has replied for this question. To provide more clarity regarding the issue, please refer to the attached image which can show the problem. Instead of displaying the Chinese characters, the Index pane simply shows some garbled characters which is the real issue. When I opened the .hhk file in the notepad, I was able to see the index text properly displayed using Chinese characters. What could be the reason behind the issue?
CHM is dependent on system locale.
If CHM is generated on Chinese locale system then it shows chinese characters in Index and Search.
Let me know if you face any issues in generating that.
Does it mean that for different languages to be supported, we have to install that particular language version of the operating systems and build the project? Or alternatively configure the system locale to that particular language and then build the project?
I noticed that in when we let the IDE generate the index, it is shown properly in development environment. Only the built CHM file doesn't show the east Asian characters.
May be we will try configuring the system locale to any of the east Asian languages and build the CHM and see.
Thanks for the reply.
