Issue Details

I installed LabVIEW 2017 which is released in Korean version on my computer. However, when I start the program, the fonts are broken, as shown in the following figure.


This is not a program issue, but rather a Windows OS setup issue. So, you can fix this broken fonts issue through windows setting.

When you want to use LabVIEW localized version, It is important that you have to match the language set in the Windows system locale to LabVIEW localized version.

These are steps for setting Windows system locale.
  1. Enter Start and open Control Panel.
  2. Click Region and Language
  3. Click Change system locale... on Administrative tab.
  4. Select the appropriate system locale, in this case Korean, and click OK. (See the below figure)
  5. Reboot the system.
