Avid Link 21.6.1_win Install failed
Posted by Avid is a son of bitch - 21 Sep 08:12AM
I failed to update Avid Link. I try to install the latest verison of Avid Link (21.6.1_win). After I click "next" at the first page of InstallShield Wizard, it occurs that "Error 1324. The path Sound Ideas ?royalty-free music.ico contains an invalid character." and then the wizard was interrupted. A possible reason is I install the Sibelius Ultimate in drive E rather than C. How to fix it and update my Avid Link?

This happens because of a Windows setting. It happens because the "system locale" for non-Unicode applications is configured to be "Chinese".

See https://flying-daw.com/threads/1197/ for a solution.
