[Solved] Unicode vs ANSI in Installer

I was recently creating an installer that had some post install code associated with it. It kept failing to compile because of the post install code. After some messing around with the code it turned out that the install code was formatted for unicode and while creating the installer this cause an error.

There has been a lot of talk about moving away from ANSI and towards unicode. Shouldn't the installer support unicode in the PortableApps.comInstallerCustom.nsh file?

Thanks

I actually did not try that. I didn't see the topic, I was just using the regular PortableApps.comInstaller from the development page. Thanks for the heads up.

CUESplitter is actually working fine and I didn't have to do anything with the install to make it work properly. I was messing around with RevoUninstaller trying to get it to prompt you to run with Admin rights. The current launcher neglects that, and if you don't launch as Admin, it just closes without letting the user know.

Can't Yet

You can't use the Unicode PA.c Installer for any official releases yet. But we will be switching to it in the near future.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
