This is necessary for paths that contain multi-bytes chars on Windows. Otherwise it displays as Garbage.

Reproduce steps

  1. On Windows
  2. Run rstudioapi::selectFile()
  3. Select any file contains multiple-bytes.

You will find garbage letters in the output. After being marked as UTF-8, it becomes correct.


Should have

This API calls some functions I believe registered with RStudio, so the root cause may embeded in RStudioAPI.cpp and the fixes should be made there.
