hi a sharepoint server 2007 (MOSS 2007) when installed on Windows Server 2008 causes a problem with non-english names for documents. that is when i upload a file as a document in a document library of a site with a name other than english, eg. a document with an arabic name it will be uploaded with no problem, but then i can't download it later, unless with a Windows 7 client. if i renamed it to english then it will be able to be downloaded with all clients. if the document being uploaded has an english name it will also can't be renamed to an arabic name via clients running Windows other than 7. even in the server it's impossible to change the name or open it (download it). in the Windows Server 2003 we have not such a problem. since the Windows 7 has no problem opening and downloading such files it seems that something must be installed on the non-Windows 7 clients. what's that?
