I have an XML configuration file I am modifying with powershell, and when I save the file using Xml.Save it changes the encoding type.
When I open the ORIGINAL file I am trying to edit in Notepad++ the encoding type is listed as “UTF-8 without BOM”.
When I open the file in Notepad++ AFTER editing using Xml.Save the encoding type is listed simply as “UTF-8”.
This causes the program using this file to Error out saying it cant parse to config properties.
IF I open the EDITED file in Notepad++, change the encoding type to “UTF-8 without BOM”, and save the file. The program will then run without error.
How can I force and or specify the Xml.Save to use the “”UTF-8 without BOM” encoding type when saving the file?
I have tried different ways of casting and saving file, but Xml.Save seems to default to the “UTF-8” enconding type.
$xml = New-Object -TypeName XML $xml.Load($file) $xml.configuration.config.option = $newValue $xml.Save($file)
