Topic: Inserting Japanese Text into Document info keys

I will preface this by saying that I am quite new to using the Acrobat SDK so I may have missed something entirely but....

I have created a small app using vb that optimizes a pdf, generates thumbnails and is supposed to setInfo values for a given document. This works just fine in English or other European languages but when I am using a Japanese version of Acrobat the text does not come through - it shows up as little boxes instead of text. I can display the text I want to go in there no problem (in stdout, or as a msgbox) but somehow when I use the setInfo() method for the iac the text gets mangled. Is there something I need to do to allow the pdf to accept Japanese characters? (I am running this on a Japanese operating system and the pdf itself is in Japanese so the characters appear there fine, I am at a bit of a loss here.)

Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated
