In Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004, the SEED deployment tool does not deploy packages that contain GB18030 Ext A. characters in the package name.
Note GB18030 Ext A. is a new Chinese character encoding standard.
This problem occurs because the external unmanaged DLLs Fci.dll and Fdi.dll are used to compress and to decompress the CAB files. The interfaces to these DLLs use the ANSI character set and do not use the Unicode character set.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
