Cannot install Workbench to HD? Read here

I have found that a lot of Workbenchs on the net are NOT incomplete, but when you try to install them in your HD (most commonly, using a virtual drive in a folder in your system instead of an HDF), the install will crash when trying to copy Locale files.

This is due to the files with strange characters like , , , etc... Seems like the emulator does not support writing of these characters onto a virtual HD.

I thought I'd post that because it will help a lot of people and debunk the myth of "Workbench disks in the net which are incomplete".

Try to use an HDF or just use a manual install and skip copying the Locale files. Who needs them anyway :P
You will get this error with any software that has catalogs in languages with "strange" characters in their filenames.
