[mkgmap-dev] Installer not working

Hi Steph,

did you try the INPUTCHARSET option of makensis ? Maybe version 3 requires that.

Yes, I think my LinuxMint runs java with UTF-8 the default.

If I try "java -Dfile.encoding=ISO8859_15 mkgmap.jar", I obtain:

$ file 20000000.nsi
20000000.nsi: BSD makefile script, ISO-8859 text


$ makensis -V3 20000000.nsi

Processing script file: "20000000.nsi" (UTF8)
Bad text encoding: 20000000.nsi:36
Error in script "20000000.nsi" on line 36 -- aborting creation process

I suppose when "é" is encountred.

The files:

Scripts, map, logs:

Hi Steph,

please forget that idea with  -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8. I thought you may
use it and I wanted to say that
you should NOT do that.
I've probably missunderstood the problem. You say that you can install
the map but Basecamp doesn't like
it, so I think you probably have an invalid map.  You may post a link
with the files generated by mkgmap for
