Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Does anyone have this little gem? It's more than 10 years old and thus to be declared abandonware according to our rules, so I think it's okay to ask for it.

Hmm I remember I've uploaded before... :?
Anyway if they're not on the FTP I could upload again.
I'm sure I have NT4 Traditional Chinese both Workstation and Server, and Simplified Chinese Server...That should be all.

No, no. I'm talking of Pan-Chinese NT4. This version supports displaying and writing of both Simplified and Traditional Chinese, but the user interface is mostly in English.

Yeah, I guess it's a bit rare at least. I didn't find it in any of the 1997/1999 MSDN subscriptions I have... But it sounds to be an interesting monster.

How do you know of it's existence, {not questioning it exists}.
Is there screenshots of it that have you interested in the build,
or have you heard of it somewhere before?
Iv'e not heard of Pan Chinese builds myself.

(14) Microsoft Develops Pan Chinese NT 4.0

[CNS, 11/12/96] Microsoft Corp. is developing a pan-Chinese Windows NT 4.0
Workstation product that has an English language interface, but that allows
both traditional and simplified Chinese characters to be entered into the
same system. The beta version is expected to be released around December.
Microsoft currently offers versions of NT 3.51 that run traditional and
simplified characters on separate systems. Pan Chinese NT 4.0 is unique in
that its user interface is displayed in English, while both traditional and
simplified Chinese can be used on the one operating system. A manual switch
within the OS allows users to toggle between GB code, Big Five code and
Unicode on the applications side. Pan Chinese NT 4.0 is based on development
work performed by China Great Wall Computer Corp. To bypass the
16-bit/32-bit and traditional/simplified compatibility issues, Microsoft is
urging developers to produce software based on Unicode.


BTW, I've now found out it was part of some Japanese MSDN subscriptions at least...

Update: If you want to verify that this is real, look in the screenshots section. KenOath has uploaded dozens of screenshots of it, gallery name is "NT4 Build 1381 Workstation - Pan Chinese".

@KenOath: I feel really bad for just asking like that, but could you maybe upload that anytime? I am really interested in that!
