Special Characters in Path/File names with CLI

If I use the CLI-Option to process a lot of videos, I have a problem: If in the path or file name is a special character, VTM fails, with the same method but ASCII-Matching names it works fine.
As a workaround I tried to use the 8.3 filenames (for example "D:\Data\UNTERH~1\Filme\FREIZG~1\Strand\RA935A~1.MP4") but then the thumbnail gets also the short name and it's also written as filename in the thumbnail.
Any additional ideas for workarounds?

That's a part of a batch which doesn't work:

@Echo Off
"C:\Program Files (x86)\VTM\VideoThumbnailsMaker.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\VTM\Presets\ChkPrt_052.vtm" "D:\Data\WWNE\18OG\Videos\!Multi\Gloria&DreamJuly\L’artDuMassageÉrotique.Wmv"
Erase "D:\Data\WWNE\18OG\!Temp\Bat\CallVTM.Bat"

If the movie file wouldn't have the É it works.

I just have checked your special character in the path.
The program works fine.
It creates L’artDuMassageÉrotique.jpg file as expected.
BUT i have noticed an issue with my picture viewer (Faststone Image Viewer). It looks like Faststone Image Viewer does
not support special characters like É. Perhaps you have the same trouble.
If you will rename the file name to L’artDuMassageErotique.jpg manually - the picture will be viewable.
So i think the problem is not related to Video Thumbnails Maker tool.

Another possible reason - make sure your special character is saved properly in your bat file.
