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

Hi

Try to remove file from Zip completely and copy file in place manually first
before running setup so that file is in place by testing

You can also upload both the zip file and the 7zip exe as dependancies. Then use the $(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR) variable to call the exe and unzip the installer.
