I am using Doxygen 1.6.3 and it is impossible to me to give a directory with a french accent.

My project is in a directory called : Galilée 2000 and in the INPUT tag this name crashed the software. I have this message :

Warning: tag INPUT: input source `../Galil�©e 2000/Galil�©e 2000' does not exist
Warning: source ../Galil�©e 2000/Galil�©e 2000 is not a readable file or directory... skipping.
*** Doxygen has finished

Could someone help me or give me a tip.

The problem is that on Windows (unlike Linux or MacOSX), the stdio functions (fopen and friends) cannot handle UTF-8 encoded strings, which doxygen uses internally. I'll have to use the wide characters versions (i.e. _wfopen) and do a proper UTF-8 to UCS2 conversion internally. Should work in the next release.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.7.0. Please verify if this is indeed the case. Reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed and please include any additional information
that you think can be relevant.
