Compiled app does not work if the path contains unicode characters

See original GitHub issue
  • Nuitka version
Python: 3.6.7 (v3.6.7:6ec5cf24b7, Oct 20 2018, 12:45:02) [MSC v.1900 32 bit (Intel)]
Executable: C:\Users\Windows10\Desktop\deploy-dir\3.6.7\Scripts\python.exe
OS: Windows
Arch: x86
  • How did you install Nuitka and Python

Via pip on the factory branch.

from import shell, shellcon

# Simply print out the current username home folder (equivalent to %userprofile%)
path = shell.SHGetFolderPath(0, shellcon.CSIDL_PROFILE, None, 0)
print("path =", path)

Compiled with:

python -m nuitka --standalone --trace-execution --debug

This works fine if the username is latin, but not with such names abc こん ツリー.

I attached ok.log and bad.log to show where is fails; but this is the final error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Users\abc \u3053\u3093 \u30c4\u30ea\u30fc\Desktop\test.dist\", line 1, in <module>
    from import shell, shellcon
  File "C:\Users\abc \u3053\u3093 \u30c4\u30ea\u30fc\Desktop\test.dist\win32com\", line 5, in <module win32com>

Released as 0.6.3

kayhayencommented, Mar 30, 2019

Seems the factory code worked on everything but MinGW64, where host encoded strings were used, and the new code has different name for that on Windows and Linux, which is something I now removed, should be better now.

@Nuitka/nuitka-pushers I plan to make a release 0.6.3 mostly right after I merged this into develop. It’s very crucial issue for compatibility with Windows, esp. to Asia. Lets try and also have the most important fixes in it, but nothing risky anymore. There is always a next release. Interestingly no hotfixes were necessary last time, and I like it that way. 😃
