The Windows console has a two-stage mechanism for configuring the font.

First, the registry specifies a subset of fonts which can be used in
the console. Initially this subset only contains Lucida Console or
Courier New. As far as I can tell, Far East localizations add a
CJK-enabled font. Googling for “add windows console font” will give
you the exact steps.

After that, chosen fonts appear in the console properties dialog.

I used Andale Mono and subsequently Liberation Mono with great success.

Ubiquity of a bug does not imply that it can or should go unfixed.
