It afraid it didn't help.
I can see the norwegian letters, but only from the machine that created
the file with the norwegian letter.
If machine 1 creates a file with a norwegian letter, it's only machine 1
that displays the file correct. The other two machines swap out the
letter. Same goes for the other two machines.
I tryed a Windows 2000 machine. It did show the catalogue created by the
Windows XP machine correct.
