The problem is that we need non-en_US Windows to reproduce this and I simply don't have access to any. The issue itself should be easy to debug and resolve once you can reproduce it.

I think Ident has English Windows as well :-(

Good news,

I was playing with running the ceed binaries in a console, and I got this:

Code: Select all

C:\Documents and Settings\yohann\ceed-0.8.0-win32>ceed-mic.exe
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\cx_Freeze\initscripts\Console.py", line 27
, in <module>
  File "bin/ceed-mic", line 92, in <module>
  File "bin/ceed-mic", line 31, in main
  File "G:\Libraries\CEGUI\ceed\ceed\prerequisites.py", line 117, in check
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe9 in position 173: ordinal not in range(128)

https://bitbucket.org/cegui/ceed/src/c3 ... ult#cl-117

I would thus bet the unicode("\n") statement might be for something about it.

I couldn't find any commit changing this line, so I'd also bet the difference between the snapshot and the 0.8.0 version about the fact that the condition:

Code: Select all

if (not ret) or (not supressMessagesIfNotFatal and len(messages) > 0):

is now triggered while it wasn't in the snapshot 11 version. (I tested, ceed-mic.exe runs fine in the snapshot version.)

I hope this will help :)

My Windows is English but you can always change the language locale, or does that make no difference?

Edit: Imo this should work: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... =windows-7

I have done it in the past when I needed to start obscure applications that required foreign locale's and had foreign encoding for that so we should be able to reproduce this even with our English Windows.

AFAIK you need to have the rich man's Windows to do this - the Ultimate version. But I am not sure. I have Home Premium.

I have Windows 7 Professional. *throws dollar bills around*

EDIT: As far as I know this also works on 7 Home Premium. You probably confuse this with language packs (MUIs) which are only available on Ultimate etc. ...

I recently changed my Windows' locale, so yes, it is possible (even on Win 8.1 Home Premium).
