In my opinion problem is encoding asian characters. Tcl use default UTF-8,
probably asian are encoded in utf-16, I don't know.

And type or select: C:\Document and settings\sra ta ta chinese chars\Local

tlpmgui use %TEMP% and next evaluate whether is able to use this path.
MS has no respect to own clients and provide not good tested or stupid
USERHOME=C:\Documents and Settings\non english username
To run program, tlpmgui has to distinguish between:
"name with spaces.exe" and name_without_spaces.exe
I'm sorry but I'm user WinXP Polish and English edition only and I have not
possibility test tlpmgui on Chinese, Japanese, Slovakian, Russian, Spanish,
German, French, Dutch, Portugese, Greek, Italian or other European, Asian,
African etc. edition of Windows. It's impossible.
I and tlpmgui team expect tests by TeX community, but not two days before
sending image to production.
