    It's NOT a DOS window. It's a Command Prompt window that features a
    subset of DOS's capabilities. Remember that SOME DOS applications
    utilize direct access to the computer's hardware (keyboard, mouse,
    printer port, modem etc) that Windows XP intentionally blocks to enhance
    system stability and security.

    IF foreign language versions of Windows XP feature native language
    Command Line windows you would have to purchase and install that
    language's version of Windows XP. OS language versions could ONLY affect
    standard command names and help prompts anyway, as applications and
    batch files running in the Command Prompt window would have their own
    language capabilities or settings. An assortment of languages in the
    Command Prompt window would add the complication of English language
    batch files becoming incompatible with Command Prompt windows utilizing
    other languages, thus requiring different batch file versions for each
    language.

    Windows applications are typically written with powerfull development
    tools that simplify the task of a programmer willing to enable alternate
    languages for user prompts, help files and control labels. This applys
    to third party Windows computable applications and those that come with
    Windows. The combination of older, less sophisticated, development tools
    and the limited memory and storage resources available in older
    computers made multi language DOS applications less common.

    Separately installed applications would have independent foreign
    language versions or language options during installation.

    To Robert: Thanks for the answer. I see what you mean, that the problem is in
    the program. This is the description of the program: "OpenKore is a
    collaborative project for creating a Free, Open Source custom client for
    Ragnarok Online servers. It's written in Perl (and some parts in C++), and is
    cross-platform." This is a 'bot' that plays the game Ragnarok for a person. I
    don't know if you've heard of Ragnarok. It's really popular in Thailand. In
    the game, the characters chat and we use Thai and English. But I can open the
    real game program for that. So thanks for the help! In case you're wondering
    why I run the 'bot program' it's to save time. I can get my characters to be
    more powerful without having to sit at the computer playing. There are many
    bot programs for Ragnarok and in some the Thai language works. They all run
    at the command prompt window. Of course the real game runs in XP. Thanks
    again for your time.
