    Run Japanese Programs in English Windows 10

    Is it possible to install and run Japanese programs (e.g., Japanese inDesign) on an English version of Windows 10? This was never possible before with Microsoft, but I am wondering if maybe they had caught up with MAC.

    It may be possible if you also install the unicode fonts that the program is using.

    All language programs use Japanese fonts with no problem. My question is whether the new Windows 10 allows for language-specific programs (like Japanese InDesign) to run. No previous version of Windows allowed this. One had to install a Japanese version of Windows, not just change the language of the menus.
