"Invalid characters" error message in PSoC Creator

"Invalid characters" error message in PSoC Creator

Question: When I try to open a PSoC Creator Project, I get the error: Unable to open the workspace "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\桌面\...\psoccreatorproject.cywrk": (Invalid character(s): 桌面) What is the cause and how do I fix this?



The problem is caused by invalid charater(s) in the file path of the PSoC Creator project, for example Chinese characters.  Non-English characters are not supported in the file path with PSoC Creator.  Use English characters for the file name and file path.  In some cases while downloading a project from the website, the browser replaces a spac character with "%20".  This will also result in the above error.  Under this condition, rename the file replacing "%20" with spaces.
