The proposition of using other C functions and changing the bdist_wininst code looks risky to me, especially as I don’t know how compatibility would be affected (see my previous message).  We are free to improve the wininst code in distutils2, or discuss a replacement (Jeremy Kloth was working on something with all the features of MSI and wininst), but for distutils I would very much prefer the simplest fix that could possibly works.

bdist_msi decodes data read from with MBCS on Windows; on other OSes, couldn’t the locale preferred encoding be used?
