Broken encoding for the GetUserInfo operation

When I try to perform the GetUserInfo operation for some accounts the FullName attribute has a broken encoding. This can be seen in the screenshot.

Is that copied from the MDaemon UI’s account editor?


If so, then there is likely a problem with the data itself.


What you sent appears to be munged already.


I need it as it appears in the MDaemon UI so that I can figure out what is causing it.


Thinking that perhaps the data is not ANSI in the Userlist.dat, perhaps In the userlist.dat file it is already encoded (it shouldn’t be).


What language is the MDaemon Installation?


How do these names render within Remote Administration?

The lines are copied from the UserList.dat file, because they are displayed correctly there. The installation language is Russian. This is a problem with only a few accounts. It is possible that the encoding breaks with certain letter combinations. For example, if you use a combination of Russian characters '' or ''. If you remove one letter from the word, the account is displayed correctly via the XML API.

No broken encoding
