VirtualBox installer and diacritical signs

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)


I tried to install different versions of VB (3.2.12, 4.0.0, 4.0.2) under my current account and for any of them it failed with the message "invalid path".

I guessed that VB installer detects "C:\Documents and Settings\François" as an invalid path.

I created a new account without any diacritical sign in the name (toto) and it worked fine.

So it seems VB installer doesn't allow diacritical signs in pathes.

Expecting this will help.
