Repackager : Unicode characters issue during build

Repackager : Unicode characters issue during build

Summary:


Unable to build the repackaged output because of ISDEV : error -7184(Unicode issue)

Symptoms:


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>|"’

Resolution:


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.
