Bug report #12657
Processing/GRASS don't work under Windows if username or input/output paths have non ascii chars
|Affected QGIS version:||3.4.4||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Windows||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed/implemented|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||No||Copied to github as #:||20770|
Already discussed with Victor and Alexander. The issue has no easy solution apparently.
If the username has non ascii chars in it Processing returns the error message saying that GRASS is not installed.
If the non ascii chars are in the input/output paths then the modules run but ultimately fail.
This is no issue under Linux.

I am working on it (only made with GRASS7)...
Following my work on #9425, I found a way to use input and output files with mbcs characters in their name for GRASS7 algorithms.
I have made the fix tests on MS-Windows XP for the moment (the only VM with MS I have). I will try it on MS-Windows 7 next week and make a Pull-Request for this soon (so you can test it).
Stay tuned !
