How to resolve the symbol in command prompt become "Yen" dollar on Win 10 (1607) when set locale to "Chinese (Traditional, Hong Kong SAR) without using Windows Update?

Problem: The symbol in command prompt become "Yen" dollar when we set our locale to "Chinese (Traditional, Hong Kong SAR)" since the command prompt using "MS Gothic" which is Japanese Supplemental Fonts

The reason of using "MS Gothic" seems to be the machine is missing Chinese (Traditional) Supplemental Fonts: DFKai-SB, MingLiU, MingLiU_HKSCS, PMingLiU (We do the same configuration on other machine which is request us to download "Chinese (Traditional) Supplemental Fonts", since the problematic machine have been disable Windows Update, it did not request to download.)



Solution: Since the Windows Update have been disabled or managed by WSUS

We need to download the "Features on Demand" and "Language pack" and install them locally (Offline)


We able to download the Features on Demand for 1607 only but not the Language pack for 1607 from VLSC



But we found the direct download


Command use:

Install Chinese Traditional - Language pack zh-TW (Remark: zh-HK on 1607 is no longer exist, using the zh-TW is same as zh-HK on 1607)

DISM.EXE /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:C:\Source\

Install Chinese Traditional Fonts

DISM.EXE /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:D:\


Issue resolved:
