I downloaded ProText.exe, and was about to start Setup according to protext-install-en.pdf. But an error popped up. And in Setup.exe, it says this.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "protext-setup.py", line 298, in <module>
  File "protext-setup.py", line 97, in __init__
  File "wx\_controls.pyc", line 494, in __init__
UnicodeDecodeError: 'cp949' codec can't decode bytes in position 4-5: illegal multibyte sequence

What does this mean? What should I do?

Have you told your error the maintainer of ProTeXt on http://www.tug.org/protext/? He can help you ... –  Kurt Jun 13 '13 at 11:47

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a ProTeXt internal or Windows issue. –  Joseph Wright Aug 12 '13 at 13:42
