CodePage 0 is CP_ACP, the default Ansi CodePage on a system, you can change it without reinstalling Windows

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/04/23

You might think the below question on CodePage zero is Delphi related, but most of it is not.

It is about CP_ACP (the currently Active CodePage, and has some interesting observations:

CP_ACP is the major reason people have difficulties exchanging the data in text files between applications on different computers.

Oh and you can get the actual value of the active Active CodePage using GetACP, but CP_ACP isn’t always slower..
