a new gadget each day keeps the doc away

Just gotten a non-camera phone as required due to my workplace. Have been searching one for quite sometime, eventually settled on the Sony Ericsson G700 Business Edition. It's quite an old model, but one with better organiser function as compared to other non-camera phone. Yeah, i know there are few models under Nokia's belt, but Nokia is never my preferred choice, lol!

Actually kinda disappointed over the performance of the phone, its laggy, even with no messages in the inbox, it will take a few seconds to load up the inbox. Similar to windows mobile, all applications are minimized and not closed. After using some period of time, i would have to go to the task manager to close everything. Quite a haste if you ask me.

I was quite tempted to get Samsung Jet since its launched, how i wish it comes with a non-camera version... Pray, pray, praying hard... haha


First, you will need a font that supports Korean. You could get it from your Windows\Fonts directory. I'll be using malgun.ttf as example here.

Copy the font to your device's Windows folder.

Using Registry Editor, navigate to the following key, [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\FontLink\SystemLink]

Append "\windows\malgun.tff,Malgun Gothic" (without the quotes) to all the values listed here. Below is the snippet of the modified values on my Omnia. Mine came with Chinese support original, explaining the extra fonts.

Courier New = \windows\sunfon.ac3,SC_Song;\windows\malgun.ttf,Malgun Gothic
Tahoma = \windows\sunfon.ac3,SC_Song;\windows\malgun.ttf,Malgun Gothic

You should be able to see korean now :D

P.S. Additional language could be added in this way similarly..

Tested and works for Omnia II =D

FontLink keys essentially extend a Western/Roman font to include non-Roman fonts. By enabling Font Linking as documented above, you enable WM6 to search for Korean characters. Inevitably, the operating system will find the correct Korean characters in Malgun.ttf and render them on your screen.



One of the old gadgets that i'm still keeping till today =D


To publish some of the applications, you could right click on the Start button, choose Open All Users' from the menu. Create the shortcut for the applications in the popup folder.

Some applications are excluded by default, to enable them,
1. launch registry editor by pressing Win+R, and type "regedit" without quotes.
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Virtual Machine\VPCVAppExcludeList
3. Search for the application and remove the entire entry
4. Restart XP and this application will be published to W7!


Seems like Microsoft decided to continue the Vista way for unicode programs, so only one unicode language will be supported at any time by going to the settings for system locale.

For me, i'm running CJK programs concurrently, so i need another solution.

The ancient old AppLocale still works for Windows 7. To install,
1. Press the windows key
2. Type 'cmd' without the quotes, press Ctrl + Shift + Enter
3. The above steps will launch the command prompt in administrator mode, the UAC will prompt you, permit it to continue
4. Navigate to the directory where the apploc.msi is locate and start the setup :D

The following link is a patch to the AppLocale to remove the nag screen
