Thanks @Dante, it works for me too

Same problem.

Foobar uses NSIS packager by old Pawłowski's colleagues. Looks like its format has been changed recently, so many unpacking tools were broken with it.

You can fix it manually for now. After the installation, move back the misplaced files:
sudo mv /usr/share/foobar2000/''$'\003''肕'/* /usr/share/foobar2000/
It worked for me.

I've upgraded yesterday and foobar2000 is broken. It seems to be links that are broken, they include weird characters like 肕 (for example : /usr/share/foobar2000/肕/avcodec-fb2k-57.dll)
I've tried to desinstall, reinstall (with yaourt), reinstall manually with the snapshot, download source and install by myself (with your PKGBUILD), nothing works.
If I double click on /home/romain/.foobar2000/%03肕/foobar2000.exe, it says "name not valid".
Any idea ?

edit : I've installed a previous version (1.3.10) from dropbox and it's OK. I think my problem comes from the way it's downloaded from foobar's website and paths are constructed.
edit2 : Same problem on my laptop

@doskoi thanks for the hint!

@doskoi the DLAGENTS method is great to know, thanks.

You can bypass the dynamic download link with the DLAGENTS variable:

DLAGENTS=('https::/usr/bin/wget -nH --cut-dirs=3 -r -l 2 -A exe %u')

This downloads from dropbox because the generates a dynamic download link.

@Aelius Hi, I was concerned about this too - but I think it's fine.

senan@manjaro ~/downloads $ md5sum foobar2000_v1.3.10-official.exe
