When you run an SUA application that prints log messages from the system logger daemon, ISO 8859 characters are printed incorrectly on Windows Server 2003 R2-based, Windows Vista-based, and Windows Server 2008-based computers

You have a Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications (SUA) application that prints log messages from the system logger daemon (syslogd) on Windows Server 2003 R2-based, Windows Vista-based, or Windows Server 2008-based computers. When you run this SUA application, ISO 8859 characters are printed incorrectly. For example, the string “Ümläütén” is printed as the following string:

\M-\ml\M-d\M-|t\M-in

However, if you print the string from applications such as WordPad or Notepad, the string is printed correctly.
