PI SDK applications can be used to input data (such as in PI System Management Tools (PI SMT), Tag Configurator), retrieve data (such as in PI AF, PI OLEDB), or display data (such as in PI Processbook, PI Datalink). Serving as the middle layer between the applications and the PI Server, the PI SDK converts Unicode strings to and from ANSI strings. It used the system code page for the conversion. So, the node on which a PI SDK application runs must have the correct language in the Windows "Language for non-Unicode programs" setting.
