Workbench or RVD launching problems caused by unicode characters in username

Applies to: RealView Development Suite (RVDS)

Answer

A workaround for the Workbench is to launch the executable directly from the user's Application Data directory, for example:

C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\ARM\ARM Workbench IDE\4.0\launcher-win_32-pentium.exe

(Where USERNAME is the name of the user.)

For convenience, you can place a shortcut to this executable on the desktop or start menu.

Another workaround that should work for both the workbench and RVD is to launch RVD or the Workbench from a command prompt, having modified the USERNAME environment variable to a value containing no unicode characters.
