Screencap of installer license agreement w/ incorrect encoding
Running installer shows incorrect format for the text. I am able to copy and paste the content into another program, in this case Microsoft word and the plain text can be read correctly.
This leads me to believe the encoding in the license agreement viewer is not set correctly
Can you take a look at this one?
Which encoding are you using for your system OS, which version of Windows, and does https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mono/release/master/resources/setup-files/license.rtf load okay in Wordpad? (you'll want to right-click save-as)
I have a hunch what the problem is, and I'm doing a test build of the installer containing a hypothetical fix.
Can you see if you still have a problem with http://xamjenkinsartifact.blob.core.windows.net/zzv/144/resources/bin/Release/MonoForWindows-x86.msi ?
Still looking the same as my screencap on my end, unfortunately
Just did a bit of digging around, apparently what's being displayed in your License Agreement is a font called PAXAR Care Symbol. Not sure if that'll help at all. Is it possible you are using a custom font that is being replaced by PAXAR on my system?

With the old build, I'd have said yes - the license RTF was specifying Helvetica (since it was produced on a Mac), which you wouldn't have, and it could have been falling back to something completely inappropriate. But my rebuild in comment 4 specifies Arial. Which should obviously be available & never fall back to anything.
A similar issue: https://musescore.org/en/node/51841
Given that we changed the font to Arial in https://github.com/mono/release/commit/5ebfdf8821fc7bc21b133666596ddc3232811f17 and we can't reproduce the issue on our end I'll close this for now. Please reopen the issue on https://github.com/mono/mono/issues if you still see it, thanks.
