FAQ #20541, published on 2013-05-03
Where to look if, on a machine, an HFSQL file, whose name contains a vowel with an accent, does not open?

This is a rare occurrence, but the faulty setting might be hard to find. The error message looks like this:

Unable to open <Param??tres.FIC> file.

System Error Details: The system cannot find the file specified.

The setting can be found here:

  • Control Panel  
  • Clock and Region  
  • Change date, time, or number formats 
  • Administrative pane
  • Language for non-Unicode programs
