str:

  • find any executable
  • rename it to "тест.exe"
  • run it Current results: NVDA is completely unusable in the app. Expected results: NVDA should handle it properly. Additional info:

UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode characters in position 0-3: ordinal not in range(128)

Marking as critical as it has a big impact on non-English users.

Any relation with #377?

For the record, if you rename a .wav with any of these characters it won't play in Winamp, or an RTF which won't load into Jarte, claiming it cannot find the file in the latter case. One suspects its stripping the high bit.
Also its not just whole file names that fail with the error you gave. You only need to substitute the one character.
If run under Hal however, although the filename now appears to be just blank, the executable does run OK.

Changed title from "NVDA doesn't work in programs containing national characters in file name of the executable" to "NVDA doesn't work in programs containing non-ASCII characters in file name of the executable"
State: closed
