Progress Software Corporation ships progress.ini with native font names as the default. Users who download support for other languages might need to replace the native font names with English font names. For example, the following lines in the [fonts] section of progress.ini allows the user to view Chinese on systems running the English version of Microsoft Windows:
DefaultFont=MS Song, size=9 Script=gb2312, fixed
font6=MS Song, size=9 Script=gb2312
Note the font name is in Latin characters.
