Sure there are issues with the default cmd.exe codepage, but I don't
think it is the problem here, aI copy paste the paths into ipython.
I changed chcp from cp850 to cp1252

>> sys.stdout.encoding
Out[11]: 'cp437'

cp 437

For me there are some issues with the default codepage that is set in
the console window when you launch python.

If you are having the same problem I have experienced then
may help you resolve your issues.
If not please let me know and I will try to improve the explanation.
