Known issues



Certain Japanese half-width Katakana and full-width Katakana characters that have a consonant mark aren’t interpreted as the same character. When you use the CompareStringEx() function with the NORM_IGNOREWIDTH flag to compare them, these characters are evaluated as different because of an issue in the sorting rule. This issue affects all the updates starting on June 9, 2020 for Windows 10, version 2004.

Updated 12/9/20:

  1. Open the Command Prompt window (cmd.exe) with elevated privileges.

  2. Run “reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlNlsSortingVersions /ve /d 0006020F /f”

  3. Restart the computer or processes to see the full effect.

Important If you have not installedKB4586853or later on the computer, setting an invalid value in this registry might prevent the computer from starting up.

This workaround reverts the National Language Support (NLS) sorting rule to version 6.2, which is used in Windows 10, version 1909 and earlier. When sharing data between systems, consider applying the workaround consistently. If you use this workaround, conduct sufficient testing and evaluations to mitigate problems caused by different sorting rule versions on multiple systems.

When using the Microsoft Japanese Input Method Editor (IME), applications might not be able to automatically change Roman/Kana input modes.

Note for developers Affected apps are using the ImmSetConversionStatus function or VK_KANA key emulation.

To mitigate this issue, do one of the following:

  • You can manually change modes with the menu in the IME.

  • Follow the instructions in Revert to a previous version of an IME (Input Method Editor).

We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
