UseUTF8ForConsoleApps Property

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

By default, the console application and RunProgram / RunProgramEx and derived actions use the current code page for processing of program input and output.  If this option is set to True, UTF-8 conversions will be performed instead.  Enabling this option can improve capture and logging of Unicode text from programs that are called from a build, but it requires Windows Vista or later (console program output may not be captured properly for older versions of Windows).  When running the console application from a Command Prompt, a Unicode font must also be used for proper display of Unicode text.
