KOI8 code in Japanese Environment
In case of Windows95
In case of Windows95, there used to be a patch software that allows input of KOI8 by replacing Windows95 Input Method.
With rather simple steps, you can prepare KOI8 cyrillic text on the "Word". Its default was set to use Polish keyboard portion of the standard Windows Multilanguage function:keyboard.

The issue should be studied futhere to find that the modification pach program has upgraded or not.
