When the capam_command is run on Windows Japanese version, the returned message shows with the garbled character. The capam_command returns the message by UTF-8 as a design but the command prompt on the Windows Japanese version tries to show it as Shift-JIS. Hence, this problem occurs.

In order to see the returned Japanese message, it is possilble to use one of the below method.
  • Open the command prompt by the 【cmd /K "chcp 65001"】, and run the capam_command.
  • Redirect the result of the command to the file, and open it by the editor that can read the UTF-8 characters.
