Got a scriptingquestion from a colleague, wasn’t that easy to find on google.
But with Windows Search I did find an old cmd-script that had exactly that problem sorted out.
So, the question was about scandinavian chars in a cmd-script. Some paths are named with non English letters and when you use them in a script it translates to a strange char instead of the letter.
This works fine:
DEL /F /Q "%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Some Directory\*.*"
This doesn’t work since there is a scandinavian letter in the path:
DEL /F /Q "%USERPROFILE%\Lokala inställningar\Some Directory\*.*"
To fix it you need to change codepage, like this:
CHCP 850 DEL /F /Q "%USERPROFILE%\Lokala inställningar\Some Directory\*.*"
You might need to use different codepage depending on the language you are using.
