Assuming that the error comes back in the sys.stdout encoding, the following version *should* work ok. I still haven't got a non-English set up to test it on, but it certainly does return a Unicode error message.


The usual test case, if you wouldn't mind:

import wmi

wmi.WMI ("non-existent computer")


should give a (language-specific) error message, not an UnicodeDecodeError
