BUG: The .NET configuration provider defaults to UTF-8 encoding when creating new configuration files
This article was previously published under Q306725
When you use the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
configuration provider to create a new configuration file, UTF-8 character
encoding is used by default.
The WMI configuration provider does not provide control
over the XML encoding that is used in a configuration file. It only uses
preexisting encoding if this is already specified in the configuration file.
To work around this problem, you can add an
attribute to the header of the configuration file
through other means (such as through an XML parser, a text editor, or direct
file access). For example, you could start with a template configuration file
that has the proper XML encoding header.
If you specify the encoding
in a configuration file, the WMI configuration provider applies the encoding on
both read and write operations. The provider also preserves the encoding
information in the XML file.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
