Have been here, new job, for a while and got a new ThinkPad T410 laptop several weeks ago. The OS is Windows XP Professional in English.
Although we use a lot English at work, but i still need Chinese input method. The New Phonetic input method from Microsoft is fine, but I like to use the New Chewing.
After installed it, New Chewing lets XP shows garbled text in “Text Services and Input Languages” window. Then i think that maybe i can fix it by modifying the Windows registery. I have a PC which uses Chinese version of XP, ofcourse New Chewing is there.
The key named “Layout Text” is in #\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Keyboard Layouts\E0200404 and change the value to “Chinese (Traditional) – New Chewing”. Click OK.
Chinese version post is here.
