Notice: other directory at the same level without accented char are ok, it is not a permission problem I can enter into dir vélo :)

Thank you for your answer.
Have a good day :)

Hello,

I've just verified my issue with the 5.15.5.
All works now (access accented dir, put/get accented file) without any modification (WinSCP client and server file).
Thank you for your answer (Martin) and I list this project in my contributor list now :).

Error code 2 (SFTP) with a accented directory name

I encounter the same issue.
On my side, I wrote a PowerShell script with the WinSCP .NET assembly.
To solve the issue, I change the encoding of the script file to ISO 8859-1

Maybe this trick can help you.

Re: Error code 2 (SFTP) with a accented directory name

@igricheff: PowerShell script should use UTF-8 (with BOM!) encoding (preferred) or Windows/ANSI encoding (legacy):
https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.powershell.core/about/about_character_encoding
So not really ISO. Though ISO 8859-1 is rather similar to Windows/ANSI 1252. That's probably why it worked for you.

Though none of this is that this topic is actually about. This topic is about WinSCP GUI. PowerShell script encoding has nothing to do with WinSCP (not even with WinSCP .NET assembly).
