Description

Build: 2001-09-17

Steps:
1. Pre-create a new directory, name it with the double-byte characters in 
attached files (the characters are entered using Phonetic and Korean (Hangul) 
IME). 
2. Start installer, follow the steps till Setup Type dialog appears.
3. Click Browse button to bring up Select a directory dialog.
4. Select the directory created in step 1.

Actual: 
1. The double-byte directory name is garbled.
2. When click OK, Select a directory dialog closes itself, and the double-byte 
named directory is not selected.

Rui, can you create a folder using the same Chinese or Korean name though
Windows Explorer?
And have you set Chinese or Korean as the default language through control panel
-> Region on the English W2K?

MS applications can create a folder using the same Chinese or Korean name
properly.

Even though set Chinese or Korean as the default language through control
panel, can still repro this bug. And, it shouldn't relate to the system 
locale and language settigs since this is an unicode problem.
