Summary0001123: Garbled characters with MS-SQL 2000
DescriptionWhen I install TestLink with MS-SQL 2000,
multi-byte characters in test components get garbled.

We don't know any method to use UTF-8 on MS-SQL 2000.
I think that the function of converting Windows unicode to UTF-8 is needed.

I would be a good test if you can install MANTIS with MSSQL support on same enviroment and report here if everything works

OK, I will try installing Mantis on Windows with MS-SQL.
Please wait for a while.

As UTF-8 on MSSQL 2000/2005 isn't supported (the use UCS2) this won't work, as PHP5 also support Unicode-strings with zero bytes in it correctly converting from UTF-8 to UCS2 also doesn't work
One solution is using ODBTP but we dont support this. Whether ADODB supports on the flying encoding from UTF-8 to UCS2 (MSSQL) as ODBTP does, is not known to me
So for any non ISO-8859-1 Stuff i see no chance at the moment

Multibyte laguage users are happy if explanation about "UTF-8 on MSSQL 2000/2005 isn't supported (the use UCS2)" in install manual, I think.
Thank you for your kindness.
