        C:\>java -version
        java version "1.3.0"
        Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.0-C)
        Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.0-C, mixed mode)

        If you install JRE1.3 to Chinese WinNT, JRE does not work.
        Because the registry entry name - "LOCAL_MACHINE/JavaSoft/Java Runtime
        Environment" - is translated into Chinese - "LOCAL_MACHINE/JavaSoft/Java
        XXXXXX"(XXXXX is Chinese characters).
        We believe that this registry entry name should be English and that the string
        was translated by mistake in Chinese. If we install JRE1.3 into Japanese, we
        can see the registry entry name in English.

        This translated registry entry name causes execution of java to fail.

        java -version
        java version "1.3.0"
        I download jre1.3.0-c international version from java.sun.com site
        and installed on windows98 mi chinese version.


        I am in China and My PC local setting is China and default language
        is simplified chinese,After I installed jre1.3 international version,In my
        register table key word display chinese "Java 插件" and "Java
        运行环境",The OS(Windows 98 version 3) can not
        recognize the chinese key,So both the browser(IE5.0) and "Java" command can not
        use.
        Obviously the bug will badly block the spread of Java in China.
