Not happening.

The only supported characters are letters a to z, numbers, period, underscore and minus.

Chdman doesn't yet have the full restrictions, but it's only a matter of time.

Try this.
chdman (chdman file and all the commands here) (To your files here.)
For example. chdman copy -i gauntl12.chd -o gauntl12new.chd (No path needed.)
See that works.
No need to set the path. Make sure chdman with the files. Make you a bat file with all the info in it. Easy way to do this.

What? Those are the rules for set names only. MAME and the tools should still work on non-English operating systems.

I’ll try to have a look at this one – we should at least be able to run with characters outside ASCII in the working directory path.

Try building current tip of master, or try this pre-built binary: http://download.vastheman.com/windows/chdman-mame0221-730-g35c46962957-mingw-gcc-x64-debug.zip

I see you are using simple command-line window interface through Windows.
Could you try with a PowerShell Window?
Having dealt with limitations of Windows and command-line windows regarding unicode/universal character support, you may get a friendlier experience using that with your situation.

Looking things up, you may have even better experience in Windows with UTF-8 using Windows PowerShell ISE

MAME doesn’t play nice with PowerShell at all, like -listxml won't work right. We depend on being able to spew UTF-8 and not have anything interfere with the encoding. The issue here is that chdman was expecting argv to contain UTF-8. That isn’t a valid assumption on Windows. I fixed it.
