Windows 8 Preview & Dyalog APL 13.0 Unicode

Postby RossHale on Tue Mar 06, 2012 10:32 pm

I installed Windows 8 Preview to a separate disk to get a dual boot of Windows 8 64-bit and Windows 7 64-bit.
I installed Dyalog APL 13.0 Unicode (32-bit) to Windows 8, followed by DyalogIME for 64-bit, .NET Interface,
and then ran patchws to to walk the dog up to current update version.
Over a couple of days all seemed to work well except for getting APL characters in expressions like ⍳9
-- It may have been working initially, but I wound up re-installing DyalogIME and working the problem to a mess.

What worked for me --
Windows 8 has enhanced the Language Bar with a new option labeled
"Let me set a different input method fr each Application Window"
Check this and Dyalog APL 13.0 Unicode is good to go.

You can get to this option through the Control Panel in Windows 8
choosing Langusge => Language Options => Change Override => Switching Input Methods

You may also reach it by right-clicking the Language Bar (optionally docked in the task bar)
and choosing Settings.
