SYMPTOMS

On a Windows Vista-based computer, you cannot find the shortcut for the Private Character Editor (Eudcedit.exe) on the Start menu. However, you can still start the Private Character Editor by using the following command:
%systemroot%\system32\eudcedit.exe
Note The shortcut for the Private Character Editor appears on the Start menu in the East Asian language versions of Microsoft Windows XP, of Microsoft Windows 2000, and of Microsoft Windows NT 4.0.
