Error – “Missing BOM Encoding”


Hacking around with little HelloWorld applications and ran into a warning.

It reads “Missing BOM encoding“.



Still stuck with Notepad++ and so loaded the app and reached for how it is currently encoded.

    • If your desire encoding is was is currently selected, please leave as is
    • Else please switch to desired encoding
  4. Be sure to save your file to effect the change
