When I try to install plugins online (via internet) , I get error message and can't install them at all with my Windows PC wthich has a Japanese user name (2byte character).
I experienced this issue with version 1.7.4 and 1.8.
I have not tried with v2.0, because I have already changed my user name from 2byte-Japanese to
1byte letters, but I think it does not work well with the newest version.
