#4185 closed Bug report (fixed)

non-standard characters in home path prevent client from functioning normally

Reported by: Dženan Zukić Owned by:
Priority: high Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: charset ascii accents Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: XP SP3


I installed FileZilla FTP client, started it, and an error message popped up:

Error loading xml file

Could not load "C:\Documents and Settings\Dženan Zukić\Application Data\FileZilla\filezilla.xml", make sure the file is valid.
For this session, default settings will be used and any changes to the settings are not persistent.


After clicking OK, several more similar messages are displayed, and file window is shown. Some more messages may appear during usage, all referring to the same file.

I believe that reason is character "ć", which is not included in charset ISO 8859-1 (US-ASCII) which is default on my system.

Again when closing the application, similar message is displayed.
