Description bacon_1982 2005-09-20 03:11:11 UTC
Hi,I am a Chinese user,and I think your product(v1.9.125) has a little bug on 
Chinese characters.I put the install directory in a path containing CHN chars
(e.g. "c:\documents and settings\...\æ¡Œé¢\"),after the install sheild generated 
the installing scripts, an error message was raised 
saying " cannot be found.".The file was indeed 
existed.But when I moved the install directory to a non-CHN-Char path(e.g. c:\)
the install sheild went on well. 
I made a screenshot but couldnot find place to post it.If you cannot represent 
the error state,please tell me how to post the pic to you.

Comment 2 Olaf Felka 2005-10-05 11:38:19 UTC
of @ is: Is there something we can do in this case?
Comment 3 2005-10-12 10:49:18 UTC
IS ->  	bacon_1982: Did you use the correct  "Regional and language settings in
the control panel"? We tested this successfully after changing this settings.
Comment 4 bacon_1982 2005-10-12 15:15:20 UTC
I've checked all the region-related settings and all the options are swithed 
to simplified Chinese, and I'm afraid that I've never changed these settings.
Comment 5 pplwong 2005-10-14 21:44:07 UTC
I can confirm his problem.

bacon_1982, if you set [Regional and Language Option]=>Advance=>[Language for
non-Unicode programs] to the Chinese you're using, then it should work.

On Windows XP, I figure that the program before the actual installer load is
non-unicode (I don't know how to call that program, but then, it's the "loader"
and the first 3 screens). And the installer itself is. Please take a look at the
screenshots I made for 2.0rc2.

I think we should try to deal with this before the release of 2.0 final.

Screenshot 1-3 are the program before the actual installer. And screenshot 4 is
the installer itself.

Note that screenshot 1-3 doesn't show Chinese correctly, and screenshot 4 does.
All show Chinese correct if I change that [Language for non-Unicode programs] to
Traditional Chinese instead of English.

I'm sure that bacon1982's problem is also a unicode problem. (I don't know if I
should open a new issue for the problems illustrated in my 4 screenshots, since
it looks like it's related problem to this one.)
Comment 11 bacon_1982 2005-10-15 02:33:32 UTC

I've confirmed my region settings for unicode parsing language and made a 
capture, I think thats alright.
In order to make my problem clear, I moved my setup files into my desktop 
folder and reinstalled the program.And still I captured the failure and made 
some comments in the picture.

But this time I've found another clue, which may be the real problem for my 
installation failure,that is the language pack for my setup files is "en-US" 
so it is supposed to be installed in an English-bases OS.If this point can be 
comfirmed, the problem could be switched as settled.
And there is one question left, I downloaded the file by BitTorrenting because 
it was fast, but there wasn't(and still isn't)any selection for a non-English 
downloading track of version 2.0.So I HAVE TO download the setup files by 
other methods if I am a non-English user?

I don't see this as a P3 issue: We have a valuable workaround. With correct
settings this won't happen. Maybe this is an OS problem.
