German Umlaut in Notes Data Path leads to corrupt notes.ini

User with nonascii character name has been leading the corruption on the Notes.ini. Software problem report - SPR# ASIABQ7GPP is already in place with the product development team to enhance this feature.

    It's not only the umlaut.

    It's the same if there is for example a # in the username.

    Basic Notes works, Standard does not start.

    It worked until Notes 9 or 10 (not sure).

    Notes 12.0.2 also does not work correctly under a Windows user with umlauts.

    The following error appears when setting up for the first time: Error first start.jpg
    The second start then works.

    Then notes have problems to read the config. For example, the language settings are then not correct everywhere:

    A german user with umlauts.
    A german User without umlauts.

    I don't know where the error is still affecting.

    Please find a solution to the problem!

    The problem still exists with notes v 12.0.2.
