[mkgmap-dev] Installer not working

From Gerd Petermann GPetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com on Mon Jan 2 17:17:45 GMT 2017


I think the problem is that mkgmap doesn't work properly when started in an environment with something like -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8.
The --nsis option will probably produce a scrambled file in that situation.
I guess we can change this in the same way as with the last patch from Mike Baggaley, but I have no idea if that would cause new trouble for others.
So, as a work around, I suggest to run mkgmap with something like -Dfile.encoding=ISO8859_15 . This should produce a *.nsi file which is not utf-8.
If makensis with /INPUTCHARSET OEM or whatever it accepts.

those effects remind me my problems earlier...

- when did this problem start ? (sorry, can't read up the complete history where I am right now).
- did/does it also happen wir releases prior to r3730 ?

r3730 was the release when the so called 'file-encoding' branch has been merged back.
This 'file-encoding' branch was handling issues with utf-8 and other codepages with regards to license files and copyright files....
The effects look very similar to what I encounterd with the old versions.... that was why some changes regarding license and copyright files has been done.

This might had some influences in other areas also.

Same result.

First I do not understand why mkgmap produces a .nsi in UTF-8 with "d�j�
install�" even if this is not the source of the problem for BaseCamp.

Hi Steph,

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