Do you have a ReceiveSMSCharset= setting in SMSGW.INI?

What is that value?

Also, what version of Windows?

I suspect that the error is somehow related to Windows not liking the value of this parameter.

Hi Bruce

I am having the same problem. I am using a Nokia 3220 GSM modem and the latest NowSMS software. I am using Windows XP Professional Ver 2002 SP2. This is the smsdebug log

Hi William,

What if you remove the "ReceiveSMSCharset=utf-8" line from the SMSGW.INI file?

Does the error go away?

(We have built-in conversion to UTF-8, which is the default value for this setting ... I'm thinking that for some reason when UTF-8 is explicitly selected, we're having a problem in some versions of Windows.)

Dear Bruce,

I removed it. The error is still there. It is strange because the php file still executes OK even with the error.

William,

Do you still see "GetProgramToExecute: Converting character set for received SMS message to utf-8" ... before you see the "Error 87".

If so, then it sounds like the "ReceiveSMSCharset=utf-8" line got added back to SMSGW.INI.

I don't think this "Error 87" is actually a technical problem. Everything should be working ok.

The error is that the text is already in UTF-8 format, and we are asking a Windows API call to convert it to UTF-8. So Windows doesn't perform any conversion because it is not necessary, and the debug log records the error. But it shouldn't be an actual problem because no conversion is actually needed.

I see the "GetProgramToExecute:..." before I see the "Error 87".

William,

Ok. Thanks for the feedback.

I don't think it's a problem. Everything should work as intended.

We're going to put in a check to avoid the unnecessary conversion attempt in a future update, so that there won't be an error in the debug log.
