    That may just indicate that you're using a different font -- one that does not include the Unicode line-drawing characters.

    Works fine here with that Windows 10 build. What font are you using?

    Consolas

    I'm pretty sure that's the same font I've been using for a long time with no problems. However, Windows 10 seems to be really bad with random stuff that happens on one install but not another. I switched to a different font and now it displays OK.

    I can confirm that Consolas does include the box-drawing characters. In fact, that's the font I usually use.

    Maybe it's a Windows 10 thing. Here,
