Description (last modified by nickm)

I get an error which involves tor trying to create a directory with accented letters.
This keeps tor from working at all, so it's a high severity bug.
(I changed the directory name below for security purposes, but kept the same style).

fev 28 13:26:40.909 [Warning] Error creating directory "C:
Users
Abra\343o Lima
AppData
Roaming
tor": Invalid argument
fev 28 13:26:40.909 [Warning] Failed to parse/validate config: Couldn't access/create private data directory ""C:
Users
Abra\343o Lima
AppData
Roaming
tor""
fev 28 13:26:40.909 [Error] Reading config failed--see warnings above.

I then tried to fix the directory in the advanced config of vidalia to:
C:\Users\Abraão Lima\AppData\Roaming\Tor
but that too didn't work with the following error msgs in the log:

fev 28 14:11:44.360 [Warning] Error creating directory "C:

I figured out that if i used the browse button to select the directory it would work. This bug can be closed now.

Interesting. I wonder how it is stored differently. Can you see that when
you select the path via the browse button?

comment:3 Changed 10 years ago by toruser

just to clarify how i fixed it: After i selected it via the browse buton it appeared correctly in the text field in vidalia: "blala ão blabla". And on the torrc it was written as "blabla \343o blabla". The ã was replaced by \343 in the torrc.

I'm closing this, it sounds like a Vidalia bug which won't bite us anymore.
