Yes, you are right, let me append the message.
Just after a fresh install of Python with PIP on Windows.
Whenever I start PIP, I get:
"Fatal error in launcher: Unable to create process using '"C:\Users
Where the correct path is "C:\Users\BürgerGegenFluglärm\AppData..."
The funny thing is that the message mentions the path twice, with
different wrong codings.
Thank you for your help.
Stand up against TTIP and ISDS !
