Line 1: Line 1:
-Windows will use a different code page for GUI applications (1252) than for the Command Prompt (437). This will lead to a display of different characters in the Command Prompt window. 
-To correct this, we need to select a font for the Command Window that allows the 1252 code page; we can do this as follows: 
-Open a command window \\ 
-Right mouse click in the title window \\ 
-Pick Lucida Console as the font\\ 
-(Raster Fonts do not work) \\ 
-and click OK. 
-The DOS utility CHCP is used to switch to a different code page: 
-CHCP 1252\\ 
-The log of a GAMS run will now show the correct foreign characters, but so will the DOS TYPE command.
