I have a SQL Script that I am attempting to package that is currently 239, 343 lines in length.
The majority of this is reference data so that data script generated by the packager is about 85% of the total length.
My source script contains both English and French text and this includes accented characters such as é.
When I install from my source script to a SQL 2012 instance, the accented characters are preserved but when I package the script into an .exe using Packager the resulting installation has replaced the accented characters with question marks.
Has this behaviour been observed before? Is there anything I can do to prevent this?
