Determine the whether SAP system is unicode or not via RFC before logon


Does anyone know if there Is any way to determine whether an SAP system is unicode or not?

The problem is if i try to connect to SAP system via RFC and the logon credentials are wrong, SAP gives back an error message. This message is either in locale encoding (japanese for example) or in UTF8 (when I connect to a unicode system). To display the message I have to know whether the SAP system is unicode or not because I have to convert the message string to UTF8 (which the GUI controls are using) or not.

Thank you all in advance!
