  beta28 fails on czech winXP (Message 1 to 4 of 4)

when I try to render a scene I get an error message and the message pane 
contains this message:
Messages cleared.
Preset INI file is 'C:\PROGRAM FILES\POV-RAY FOR WINDOWS 
V3.6\RENDERER\QUICKRES.INI', section is '[160x120, No AA]'.
Preset source file is 'C:\Program Files\POV-Ray for Windows 
v3.6\scenes\main.pov'.
-
Cannot open INI file 'C:\Documents and Settings\u ivatel\Data aplikac 
\POV-Ray\v3.7\ini\povray.ini'.
Failed to start render: Failed to parse INI file

"u ivatel" should have been "u¾ivatel" (another username could fix this) 
  and likewise the "data aplikací" folder misses an í (no workaround 
known for this).

Megapov 1.2.1 and PovRay 3.6 works fine.

Thanks in advance for pointing me to a potential solution. If there's 
none I'm looking forward for a new beta (or a MegaPov with SMP).

Thanks for this, I"ll look into it this weekend (I hope to do a new
beta then, time permitting). At the moment I don't think there is a
workaround.

This fixed more than you think, asc("á") now gives the correct answer :)
Even when using >0xFF Unicode characters!

(compared to 3.6... maybe this is a different problem that was fixed in an
earlier beta)
