UTF-8 File to UTF-16 File Conversion

3 posts in this topic

I am trying to create an XML file that can be imported by Windows Task Scheduler. The problem I am running into is that the _XMLDomWrapper only has the option to create ANSI or UTF-8 encoded XML files. Apparently Windows 7 needs the XML file to be UTF-16.

So, is there a way to convert UTF-8 encoded files to UTF-16?

I tried this hoping for an easy fix. Using FileOpen to open the file in UTF-16 format and then changing some lines and closing but no dice.

FileOpen($schedulefile, 32)
_FileWriteToLine($schedulefile, 1, "<?xml version=" & chr(34) & "1.0" & chr(34) & " encoding=" & chr(34) & "UTF-16" & chr(34) & "?>", 1)
_FileWriteToLine($schedulefile, 2, "<Task version=" & chr(34) & "1.3" & chr(34) & " xmlns=" & chr(34) & "http://schemas.microsoft.com/windows/2004/02/mit/task" & chr(34) & ">", 1)
FileClose($schedulefile)

$csv = FileOpenDialog("Please choose an XML file to fix",@MyDocumentsDir, "(*.XML)", 1+2)

$file_save = $csv&"new.xml"

$file = FileOpen($file_save, 32+2)

If $file = -1 Then

MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")

Exit

EndIf

FileWrite($file, FileRead($csv))

FileClose($file)

Pretty easy to write, I recommend reading the Help file on the following functions in this snippet of code.

_ConvertFileToUTF16("Example.xml")

Func _ConvertFileToUTF16($sFilePath)
    Local $iEncoding = FileGetEncoding($sFilePath)
    Local $hFileOpen = FileOpen($sFilePath, $iEncoding)
    If $hFileOpen = -1 Then
        Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    EndIf
    Local $sData = FileRead($hFileOpen)
    FileClose($hFileOpen)

    $hFileOpen = FileOpen($sFilePath, 2 + 32)
    If $hFileOpen = -1 Then
        Return SetError(2, 0, 0)
    EndIf
    FileWrite($hFileOpen, $sData)
    Return FileClose($hFileOpen)
EndFunc   ;==>_ConvertFileToUTF16
