MSLU: reported bugs and known issues
(The Microsoft Layer for Unicode on Windows 95, 98, and Me Systems)
(Originally posted 27 April 2002; last updated 10 December 2004)
By popular request, this page is going to list known issues that are either under investigation or fixed for a future release. Most issues start life being reported
in the microsoft.public.platformsdk.mslayerforunicode newsgroup on the msnews.microsoft.com news server and you can often see discussion about the issues there while
they are under investigation.
If you have any questions about or problems with MSLU, whether or not they are related to issues listed below, you should feel free to ask them in the
mslayerforunicode newsgroup (available via both NNTP and
HTML). You can also come by with
good news, if you want to. :-)
The latest Platform SDK contains a UnicoWS.lib file that was build using the VC++ 7.0 compiler, and the format is not 100% compatible with the linker in VC++ 6.0. In order to use the .LIB file, you need to either not use the /DEBUG flag or use VC++ 7.0. This problem will be addressed in the next PSDK update.
This page is obviously not on the Microsoft web site, but it is maintained by an employee of Microsoft who is the principal developer for MSLU. Certain factors
beyond normal control can cause there to be a difference between what you see here and what is eventually released. As they say, this posting is provided "AS IS"
with no warranties, and confers no rights. With that said, best efforts to keep this page accurate will be made any time such a difference does, in fact, exist.
