My project is InstallScript MSI project, and supports multi-language, include(engilsh, greek, french, italian, german, etc.)

In the project I have a custom dialog with the "Next" "Back" "Cancel" buttons
I export the string table (Greek),
and edit the string from english to greek
"&Next >" to "&Επόμενο >"
"< &Back" to "< &Πίσω" ,
"Cancel" to "Ακύρωση"

then import the Greek string table, build my project
I got the build error...

C:\InstallShield 2009 Projects\myProect\_ISUser1032.rc (23): error RC2103 : unexpected end of file in string literal

ISDEV : error -6118: The Resource compiler failed to build the RES file "C:\InstallShield 2009 Projects\myProect\_ISUser1032.res" required to link the DLL.

its only occur in Greek language, other languages are OK,

Does anyone also have this issue? Please give me some hints.
Thanks in advance...

It's the charset encoding, i think you should use utf-8 but i don't know if installshield support that.

Here, http://stackoverflow...table-entries-t, we can read:
"In InstallShield 2010 and later, it will still accept that or use UTF-8, depending on other columns in that table."

Have you tried to edit your table directly in installshield ?
Or with notepad, change the encoding when you save your file to utf-8.
