12-21-2021With the release of Agent 35, the following documentation has been updated.
12-07-2021We now support non-Latin characters for Windows patches and system details. You should no longer see the placeholder characters in their place going forward. We have tested thoroughly with the following:
  • Russian/Cyrillic
  • Chinese (Simplified/Traditional)
  • Korean
  • Japanese
  • Arabic
Note: This only affects devices running PowerShell 3.0 and later. Windows 8 and later include this by default. Windows 7 devices would have received it in an update in 2012 but it’s technically optional, so they may not necessarily have it.
Historical patches that were previously installed will not have updated characters. But pending and future patches will.
