Load file error - UTF8 in Filepath

Postby tmisk » Tue Nov 14, 2017 6:07 pm

Hey,
I've got a load file error while loading a file.
The problem occurs when there is an utf-8 letter in the filepath.

I was able to get two different errors depending on the letter in the filepath.

TouchDesigner088 loads files with no problem.

Similar issue

When trying to use parameter rootfolder in a folder dat

if there is an apostophe, a comma or likely other characters in the folder in windows, the folder dat comes up empty, but has no errormessage or warning . This leads to issues in large music catalogs where the folder has been named by cddb etc.

For the first issue, what language is your OS set to. In the current released versions we only support codepage 1252 for our strings
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows-1252
Those two characters arn't in that codepage, so I'm wondering if they work in 088 for you due to your language/locale settings.

Although it didn't make it into the 2017.30000 series branch, full unicode support is coming and is far along. The next branch release after 2017.30000 should include it.
