View Full Version : EULA - problems with extended ASCII characters in SdLicenseEx (Non-RTF) dialog

I have an Installscript-MSI project where we display our EULA using the SdLicenseEx (Non-RTF) dialog. There are couple of extended ASCII characters that seem to be causing trouble, particularly when installing on Chinese/Japanese/Korean Windows:

á ó é

The file has typically been kept as ASCII, which is fine except when installing in Asian Windows versions.

I tried converting the text file used by the dialog into UTF-8, and in Notepad++ this appears fine, but then when running the installer, these characters end up getting converted to Japanese characters that don't belong.

I would appreciate any advice on this issue.
