How to get rid of gibberish in menu?


I found another question on how to change the language for Studio (but it would've been nice to have my actual language used - Ukrainian, since it's available, or was available). Still, I can't seem to figure out how to get rid of gibberish in the menu without changing the Windows settings:

Product version: IRIS 2022.1

The iristray (or any other IRIS utilities like CStudio, ConnectionGUI, util) should get the captions from the c:\InterSystems\IRIS\bin\<utility><language>.DLL. Where <language> should be UKR in your case (according to windows local settings). Is iristrayUKR.DLL missing in your installation ?
(Close and re-start the systray after you changed/renamed the language dll to see the new language)


It looks like an encoding problem, Win-1251 to Win-1252 specifically.

Yes, I do have a DLL. Besides, the rest of the menu items are OK.

The same problem with About screen:

I checked on version 2022.2CE & Win11 - everything is displayed as it should.


It's a windows box issue, not InterSystems IRIS issue. I've seen a few, easiest solution is to delete localised DLLs, which would make all text English. Not perfect, but better than the gibberish.
