cp866u patch for ukrainian 'i' in console applications (NT4/w2k/XP)

by (remove X)

Sorry, full text is in Russion only

There is well-known Windows problem with Ukrainian letters 'I' and 'i'. They are displayed as question mark ('?') in console applications. But the most annoying thing is that these files cannot be copied with console File Managers, like Far. Proposed patch fixes it.

Installation notes
from (remove X):

  • Unpack cp866u.rar and run setup.bat, reboot you computer.
  • It is important to run patch on the same partition where WINNT (for NT4/w2k) or WINDOWS (for XP). is located. This requirement comes because extmove.exe utility, that is called by setup.bat, build special list of files to be copied in Registry. Then during boot system copies files itself. That time only Windows system partition is guarranted to be available.
  • Note, just after setup.bat execution language switch bar may disappear from tray. In this case after reboot you sould go to Control Panel->Keyboard->Input Locales and add required languages.

Recomendation for Far users: apply patch for koi8-u and cp1251 tables. See here for details.
And just for funs: mixed Russian+Ukrainian keyboard layout. It contains all letters and signs.
