How to Install


This introduction is for Windows 11 environment. For Windows 2000 Professional, the installation steps are somewhat different. Please see other sites on how to enable East Asian languages on that platform. For Windows 95/98/NT4, it is required to download Asian language support and input editor files from Microsoft's Web site.

Windows 10 Installation

Original CPIME was developed on Windows XP platform and requires extra setting to be installed on Windows 10 platform.
Due to repeated specification changes in Windows 10 updates, the workaround differs based on which Windows 10 version you are using.

Thanks to Pinyin Joe's great work, he summarized workaround and instructions by each version on his website.
If you are using Windows 10 and having trouble to install or activate CPIME even after the steps below, please refer to the website after executing IME installation ("1. Install CPIME" section below).
