Repackager : Unicode characters issue during build
Unable to build the repackaged output because of ISDEV : error -7184(Unicode issue)
If the repackaged package has some Unicode characters, the build may fail with the error ‘Error: 7184: The value column of the Registry table includes characters that are not valuable on code page 1252: "[~]160†∠慄慴慢敳湉瑳湡散摉•›㜷㤷ਬ†∠敓畱湥散•›㠱ⰶ †愢瑣癩瑩卹潴敲摉•›ㄢ䄹ぁ㍅ⵁ㙃㑂㤭㝅ⴵ㤵䅆㔭㠹〷䍄㠱䙁∶紊|<lf>|"’
The Unicode errors appears to be related to a character set that is not supported without enabling UTF-8 encoding on the MSI in the InstallShield Editor.
• Don’t build the repackaged output in Repackager.
• In the captured output location only build the Editor (.ISM) project file using InstallShield (right click and select Edit with InstallShield)
• Go to:
1. MEDIA > Releases
2. Click on the release (likely Release1)
3. Click on Build tab
4. Select Build UTF-8 Database, change it to Yes
Please see the attachment 'InstallShield unicode build.PNG' for reference,
Note : This workaround may not work for all the packages.
