[izpack-users] Problem with accents on shortcut definition

Hi Wellber,

I use portuguese (brazil) WinXP and I didnt have problems with shortcut, but
that´s probably because none of my shortcuts paths included special
characters. I did have problems with special characters when using registry

In my case, the problem was that the URLs were not  being decoded using
UTF-8. Look at com.izforge.izpack.util.Librarian.revisePath and you will see
what I mean.

Find where in the izPack source code the paths of the shortcuts are being
decoded, then try not to use methods like the revisePath. Try using
URLDecoder.decode(path,"UTF-8"). Recompile izPack and there you go.

I did this with the registry keys and solved my problem. Hope you can use
this to solve yours
