I can not edit .fla files. Anyway, by using a text editor I noticed that inside hotspot_admin.fla there are two places with the following code:


I suspect that this kind of code causes the problem, see

This is what is to be done:

1. The files hotspot_admin.fla, hotspot_solution.fla and hotspot_user.fla have to be edited, all the lines inside


should be commented, they disable UTF-8 functionality. Then these fla files are to be compiled for producing the correspondent swf files.

2. The file .../chamilo/main/exercice/ has to be slightly modified. This file passes the translated strings to the swf objects. This file should guarantee always to pass UTF-8 encoded translations, even when the Chamilo platform is set to be non-UTF-8 (through the setting "Platform character set").

A temporary workaround is possible without recompiling the flash files. For the current interface language we can retrieve the most probably used non-UTF-8 encoding. Then in the passed language variables should be recoded from the system encoding to the guessed non-UTF-8 encoding. This approach however would not work correctly on any language or client machines. It works with Bulgarian language on my machine, but I doubt that it would work with Chinese, Japanese, ... It is preferable we to enable UTF-8.

Has anyone knowledge about compiling .fla files easy?

i think the swf is already being worked on to remove the Dokeos reference.

both issues should be combined.
