A SQL Server 2000 server that sets up a collation with Japanese_Unicode returns LCID 0x10411(66577) to a client. However, LCID 0x10411 is not supported on Windows 2000 and later.
Customers who have already configured SQL Server with Japanese_Unicode can use LCID 0x411 instead of 0x10411 in the client application.
SQL Server can emulate the sort order of Japanese_Unicode. However, you cannot use Japanese_Unicode in a general application that depends on the operating system for sort ordering.
When you specify LCID 0x10411 in a connection string, as follows, you cannot connect to SQL Server on a Windows 2000-based computer:
objConn.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Locale Identifier=0x10411;Data Source=...;"
