Printing to your Canon printer from Windows proves nothing because the
printer supports UFR II, PCL5e/6, Adobe Postscript 3, PDF and XPS.
Your V5R4 system is outputting PCL5e, so unless you generated PCL5e from
Windows, your test was invalid.

I have most of the V5R4 manufactures type and models as both source object
on a V6R1
When I have a hex 9F in an *SCS spool file and send it using a newer V5R4
WSCST, the generated PCL changes it to a hex 80 and I get a Euro symbol.
The PCL also selects a PCL symbol set of 19U which translates into
Windows 3.1 Latin 1 (ANSI)

The best way to debug this would be take a look at the PCL. You can
capture the PCL with a network trace or by using an outq on the i to LPR
to itself or a windows box.
If you load a PCL5e driver on a windows box, you can retest the printer's
ability to print the Euro. Then if your add LPR/LPD support to the windows
side you can share out the printer.
The shared windows printer name becomes the queue name to send to from the
i. Use whatever WSCST you wish to test.
Simply opening that print queue in windows, let's you pause it or under
properties advanced options, "Keep printed documents"

With the window's queue either paused or set to Keep printed documents,
send your test file.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS and you should find a PCL
version of your i Series spool file
You can find your own PCL viewers/debuggers or send it to me since you are
using a Canon printer.

If you wish to call to discuss, I'll be out of pocket for about an hour.
