Assume that Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 is installed on a computer that is configured to use a display language that uses Double-Byte Character Set (DBCS) characters, such as Japanese. Then, you run one of the following scripts in Exchange Management Shell (EMS):
In this situation, the DBCS characters appear garbled. More specifically, the characters resemble the following:
�}���E�F�A��G���W����X�V���ł��B����ɂ͐���������܂��B DateTime ��ɍX�V���ꂽ�G���W����m�F���Ă��܂��B Microsoft ��X�V���Ă��܂��B�ŏI�X�V: 1900/01/01 9:00:00
This issue occurs because the *.strings.psd1 files that correspond to the scripts use the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) format instead of the 16-bit Unicode Transformation Format (UTF-16).
To resolve this issue, install the following cumulative update:
2892464 Description of Cumulative Update 3 for Exchange Server 2013
To work around this issue, save the *.strings.psd1 files in the UTF-16 format in the language specific subfolders in the Scripts folder.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
For more information about the ANSI format and the Unicode format, go to the following Microsoft website:
