To help you better we need some information from you.

*** Please fill in the fields below. If you leave fields empty or specify 'latest' rather than the actual version your answer will be delayed as we will be forced to ask you for this information. ***

Product, version and build: PS 173
32 or 64 bit version of product: 64
Operating system: win10 1909
32 or 64 bit OS: 64

I tried to build a project I havent built for some time. The only change has been upgrading the version of powershell studio. (im on 173).
All files in the project have UTF-8-BOM as their file encoding.
I get the error: Unsupported file encoding (Unicode Big Endian)
Cheers

Interesting. I checked the Options and the Default File encoding was UTF-16-LE. I changed that to UTF-8-BOM and it compiled OK. Dont know how it got changed to UTF-16-LE though....

This is an issue we are aware of in setting the default file encoding. This issue has been addressed and the fix will be in the next service release.
