Description

Hello world,

I've noticed that QGIS 1.8 has a problem when special characters are used in the path of a file that is loaded as raster layer.

For example, when I add a new raster layer (ECW file...) that is in C:/donn*+é+*es/file.ecw, it appears all black in QGIS. But when I import the same file from an other path without special characters, like C:/donnees/file.ecw, it appears properly.

Yes, I can also change the name of my file paths ;-) But when you have to work with a server that's not yours...

can you test QGIS master, please? thanks!

#2 Updated by Romain Blanc over 7 years ago

I've tested QGIS Master (1959182) and I can't open any ECW file -> PE_1123-44.ecw is not a supported raster data source

Thanks for your help! ;-)

Hello ;)

I'm sorry, I'm a bit late...

Thank you Giovanni Manghi for the link, I've followed the steps and I can now open ECW files from a path without special characters.

But I've tried many times in QGIS 1.9.0-17 -18 -19 -20 to import an ECW file from a path with special characters. No, it don't work anyway -> "data.ecw is not a supported raster data source". I precise I can easily open the same file when it's in a path without spec chars.

Thank you!

Thank you!

on Windows 7/8 there are no issues on any path that contains characters like ç ã é á è spaces etc.

if this is a XP only problem than I suggest to close this ticket.

So, I'll update my Windows XP to Win7 ;-)
Or try Ubuntu!

Thanks a lot for your help!
