Crashes QGIS or corrupts data: Copied to github as #:10174


When I tried to open shape files with qgis-0.8.0-preview-win32 on my Win2000Pro(Japanese), QGIS failed to open it and then autmatically crashed. I tried it with QGIS demo data (without Jpananes fonts), Japanese data (with Japanese fonts) and Thai data (with Thai fonts) but their results were the same.

I tried it with my WinXPPro(SP2)(Japanese) for those three types shape files, however, the results were the same.

The bottome line is that QGIS0.8.0 runs on my PCs couldn't open any vector files and it always crashed.

Also I found that it couldn't open any .qgs files that was created in 0.7.3 as well.

I myself found the way to escape this problem.
Put the qgis module into a folder without using double byte characters name in path, then qgis runs fine as attached image (qgis080.jpg).

Some users tend to install software program(s) into a path using double byte characters set so the bug should be fixed anway.

Concerning your second point (couldn't open any .qgs files that was created in 0.7.3), this is normal (format of qgs files has changed betwee 0.7 and 0.8)
