OL2000: Command-Line Parameter -c <form name> Does Not Work with Turkish Regional Settings

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
SYMPTOMS
The command line parameter -c form name, which is used to create a new e-mail message based on a custom e-mail message, may not work with Turkish regional settings. For example, instead of the form IPM.NOTE.FORM1, the standard form IPM.NOTE opens, and you do not receive an error message.
CAUSE
The command-line form name is converted to lowercase and there are two lowercase letters "i" in Turkish 1254:
  • i: U+0069 with dot
  • i: U+0131 without dot
Both of these letters are mapped to same uppercase letter I. That is why uppercase-lowercase roundtrips do not succeed, which affects string compares.
