    What Japanese characters are you putting in the "printer-make-and-model"?
    UTF-8 Japanese characters or some other character set?

    Do UTF-8 characters cause a problem if they are included in the 20-character
    key that the client uses to index into the .inf file?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Hi,

    I'm trying to make my product to be interoperable with Win2000
    IPP client. In the "Printer Wizard" of Win2000, it seems choose a
    perticuler printer driver from "printer-make-and-model" attribute
    as an .inf file entry name.
    This works perfect for American printers, however, some of Japanese
    IPP printer does have Japanase product name in "printer-make-and-model"
    attribute(since it is NOT a keyword but a Text with or without natural
    language), so that the Wizard fails to choose driver.
    Does "printer-make-and-model" is the only attribute for Win2000 to
    determine a printer driver?

    Regards,
