Russian Characters in Crystal Reports XI Windows SP4



I have a sample report which reads a mysql database and display few data fields from it. The problem is the russian characters are not displaying properly instead strange characters are showing up.


Version Name: CRXIWIN_SP4

Mysql ODBC Driver: MySQL 3.51.21

Character encoding of the db: UTF-8

Should I install available service/language packs? I read a thread wherein XI Release 2 has multi language packs functionality upon install. But the suggestion there is to remove the current XI and install a fresh CR XI Release 2. I cannot afford to uninstall my current CR XI installation. Do I have any options?

Please help me to resolve this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
