this comes up every so often over the year & just popped up again today: cf can't find files (cf, image, etc.) that are named using languages that use a non-ANSI charset (like unicode). on windows the file names get garbaged (ie the thai named ???.cfm becomes ???.cfm) & cf can't find them. this is a cf issue as IIS can serve similarly named HTML files.

i have a vague recollection that if the server's default locale corresponds to the language used to name the file (ie the example above might work if server OS's locale was th_TH) but this won't do for apps that have to support many locales.

i know that the workaround is not to use non-english to name files but sometimes that simply won't work. i especially foresee problems as cf starts to handle more Office type documents that can be named pretty wildly by clerical staff.


create a cf file named in any non-ANSI language on an en_US server. try loading that file.
