dear GRASS GIS community,
testing of winGRASS is a important piece of puzzle to guarantee a stable and useable software on the MS windows platform in the future.
For this, we would need the help of the community now. :-)
background is an _error in g.extension while installing i.fusion.hpf in windows_
some more information
it's an encoding issue while opening files via python.
a possible solution may be set PYTHONUTF8=1 as environment variable.
and a way how you could help, just add
in C:\OSGeo4W64\apps\grass\grass79\etc\env.bat just before GRASS_PYTHON is set. (or in the same file in the standalone winGRASS installation).
it would look like:
and then happy GRASS GIS working :-) and report back if there are any issues in your daily winGRASS work.
