It looks like Unicode NSIS installs into "c:\Program Files\NSIS\Unicode" by
default. Could we add a "MAKENSIS_UNICODE" definition to config.nmake and
require it for the PA package?

I upgraded NSIS on the XP to 2.46 and installed NSIS Unicode 2.46.

John, we have a PAD file at http://www.wireshark.org/wireshark-pad.xml for the
Win32 installer which is updated as part of the release process. I can add one
for the PA package if it helps.
