When trying to perform a calculation, I get the message "The path to RWIND Simulation working directory cannot contain any non-ASCII characters." What can I do?


The working directory is a local path where the data of the currently opened structure is temporarily handled and saved. It consists of the first letters of the file. Only ASCII characters may be used.

The non-ASCII characters are, for example, "ä," "ö," and "ß."

To avoid this problem, replace the special characters in the file name by the ASCII characters, such as "ae" and "ss" instead of "ä" and "ß." When you open the file again, the message will no longer appear.
