SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You are running a Windows XP-based computer.
  • You create an End-User Defined Character (EUDC) font.
  • You deploy the EUDC font to a Windows 7-based computer or to a Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer.
In this scenario, you can enter the EUDC characters by using a phonetic Input Method Editor (IME), such as Pinyin IME. However, you cannot enter the EUDC characters by using the Changjie IME.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the format of EUDC-related files in Windows XP differs from the format of EUDC-related files in Windows 7 and in Windows Server 2008 R2. Therefore, Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 cannot recognize the EUDC-related files that were created in Windows XP.
