Well, I'd recommend Unicode NSIS instead of traditional NSIS.

Unicode NSIS

Our build system produces (a very complicated) MSI package, not NSIS.
I think nobody volunteers to rewrite it for NSIS. MSI has the
advantage over NSIS, that it is the native installer format on
Windows, and makes enterprise deployments easy. We used to have an
NSIS wrapper on the top of MSI and we got rid of it, because every
extra layer adds complexity, increases install time and requires more
disk space.

Best regards,
