Question Japanese characters in default install override

I'm having an issue on a Japanese locale machine.

When doing a command line installation to a folder that has Japanese characters in the path, the installation fails. It does work through the gui install.

${GetParameters} $ComdLine

${GetOptions} $ComdLine "/Dir=" $R0
StrCpy $INSTDIR $R0

Using NSIS 2.39

Is there a work around for this?

Thanks!

You may need to try using Unicode NSIS. This may be a problem with GetParameters/GetOptions trying to parse non ASCII characters.

Would you care to share what you found? Save some poor future noob from asking for help if he could read the solution right here.

Sure, apologies .... I neglected to use the unicode installer engine when building the installer!

Converting our script as per the instructions and using the unicode installer did the trick. We will be evaluating to see if we can build all of our installers with the unicode version. Just need to make sure nothing breaks.
