BS3 foregn characters bug?
« on: June 16, 2018, 12:58:25 AM »

BS3 seems to be a bit dissatisfied with my Windows user name, ?yvind. The error message contains a garbled version of my name, and BS3 failed starting several times with this message, until I moved the data to C:\BeerSmithData. Still had to restart several times before BS3 would start, but now the activation and BS2 data was lost.

You can re-import your BS2 data using the File->Import BeerSmith 2 Directory command.

I do apologize for the issue - I'm using some standard routines to find the default Documents/BeerSmith2 folder but apparently they are not Unicode compatible in all cases.  I'll take a look at it again and see if I can make it better in the future.
