Zip file with incompatible character
Ok here is a weird one for you. I have this software that I finally figured out how to silently install as it is a two part installer where one part needs some old DirectX 9 runtimes installed first. The second part is the actual program. The problem comes in when I try to ZIP up the Installer folders with my install.bat and the setup.iss file I created it fails because there is a manual in PDF form that has a ® symbol in the filename. So I thought remove that symbol right?? NOPE! If I do that the installer hangs and fails because it is looking for that specific PDF with the exact filename symbol and all. So does anyone know how I can ZIP up a file that has that symbol so that when it is unzipped it will still have that symbol in the filename. I have to deploy this software to 60 computers and I rather not have to install it by hand.
NOTE: 7zip will zip up the file and unzip it with the ® symbol in the file name in my tests with a text file but if you use the built in ZIP features of Windows it does not unzip the filename properly. I have not tested this with KACE but I do not know what it uses to extract it's zip files
