Hi Andrea,

I already tried a local build in Arabic for Windows.
The installation directory is being created but when packaging the
download file with NSIS there is an error.
All I could do is to upload a ZIP of the installation files. I will
start a new build and probably upload tomorrow...

Since the additional packaging with NSIS is unique for Windows a build
for Linux may be successful.
(We use NSIS 3.x since 4.1.3 so that may be a problem)

Additionally I added "ar" to the Windows buildbot and forced a new build.

Regards, Matthias
