How to enable EtherShare Admin 3.1 for Mac OS X Japanese
EtherShare Admin has been localized for Japanese. On Mac OS X, however, it does not show the correct Japanese characters.
As a solution for this problem HELIOS Software GmbH released the “ESA Japanese Enabler” which enables Japanese character usage for EtherShare Admin.
Sharepoint: “HELIOS Tools”
How to use “ESA Japanese Enabler”:
Copy the EtherShare Admin folder from your “HELIOS Applications” volume, folder “MacOS:EtherShare Tools” to your local hard disk
Launch “ESA Japanese Enabler”
Follow the directions of “ESA Japanese Enabler”:
Select the copied local version of “EtherShare Admin”
“ESA Japanese Enabler” will tell you “Switched to Japanese”
Launch “EtherShare Admin”
In “Ethershare Admin” select preferences to switch the language to Japanese
Japanese characters should show correct now, e.g. in the menu bar
As “root” you can use the “ESA Japanese Enabler” directly on the “EtherShare Admin” binary on the server, to enable Japanese characters so that all users then can simply copy “EtherShare Admin” to their local hard disk.
