Failed to read RBE/RBS file - Unicode character in username (Windows 7, SU2016)
Getting this error in SketchUp Make 2016 when trying to load an RBS file in a path containing Unicode characters (username is “HD INFORMÁTICA” in the example below). Tested in Windows 7 32-bit but I believe the same would happen in other Windows versions, 32 or 64-bit. RBS file was generated with the scrambler found here. Works fine if placed in a path without Unicode characters.
Error Loading File C:/Users/HD INFORMÁTICA/AppData/Roaming/SketchUp/SketchUp 2016/SketchUp/Plugins/bimbon/main.rbs Failed to read RBE/RBS file.
Is there a way to load an RBS file in a Windows path with Unicode characters? Or the only way is to use an RB file instead of an RBS one? Or maybe there’s something wrong in my code?
force_encoding("UTF-8") wasn’t enough to fix this error.
I know about the
%ProgramData% workaround but I would rather not have to ask users in this situation to move files around…
Any help is appreciated
