On Windows, the Surround SCM CLI displays Unicode characters as question marks and boxes.
The +u option, which displays CLI output in Unicode, is not specified or the Windows language files are not installed or configured correctly for the language.
Make sure that you specify the +u option to display CLI output in Unicode. If the characters are still displayed incorrectly when using +u, you need to install and configure the Windows files for the language you want to display.
- Choose Start > Settings > Control Panel.
- Double-click Regional and Language Options.
- Click the Languages tab.
- In the Supplemental language support area, select the language to install.
A confirmation dialog box opens that specifies the required disk space for the language files.
- To install language files for Arabic, Armenian, Georgian, Hebrew, Indic, Thai, and Vietnamese, select 'Install files for complex script and right-to-left languages'.
- To install language files for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, select 'Install files for East Asian languages'.
- Click OK to close the confirmation dialog box.
- Click the Advanced tab.

Note: You may need to install the language files from the Windows installation CD or your network.
