Hi,

Using the msgbox command from the tcc command line shows the french accents without problem but not from a btm batch file. The btm batch file is ansi encoded and I'm using notepad++ to edit the file. Do I need to change the encoding of the btm to unicode? Using Take Command version 22.00.38.

Thanks.
Carl

It certainly wouldn't hurt.

You don't mention which version of TCC you're using, but most versions use your system's OEM code page, whereas your text editor probably uses the system's Windows ("ANSI") code page.
