Apparently I was a little too brutal in the first step of the - still
ongoing - refactoring, This is now fixed and should be made available in the
next highest numbered build downloadable from
https://builder.blender.org/download/daily/ by tomorrrow. Thanks again for the
report!

This supposedly means that the file you fed it is not UTF-8 (most standard
international text character set). if that file is available online can you
share / send it ?

Otherwise if file is proper utf-8, it could also mean that only path to the file
contains non UTF-8 characters.

Never mind : I managed to generate a file that triggered the exact same error to
validate my fix. It should again be available to you tomorrow in that same
place. What the fix does is convert any input file to utf-8 by removing non
utf-8 characters since these generally can't happen in language directive,
rather in user declared names. Which shouldn't be a problem as the alteration
should be quite similar almost everywhere, except when two names differ only by
one different non uniode char in exactly the same place (like e.g. two
accentuated similar words with different accents)

Attached image shows morphine molecule from Avogadro pov output with deliberate
trema accentuated a inside comment, resaved to non utf-8 (nordic) encoding.

Can you try again to import the same file of your own previous attempts to
confirm it at least no longer reports that error?

Did you update your blender build (https://builder.blender.org/download/daily/)
?
or did you click the update addon button from preferences ?  (the latter is not
that tested, so maybe you encountered another bug there ? )

Did you try to feed the importer an avogadro output, these should work.

Avogadro is an open source software for modeling molecules which can output them
to POV file
