 The Windows fopen() implementation assumes that file paths are in the
 default system encoding, which is win-1252 on the system that created this

 Windows does not support UTF-8 as a default system encoding, because its
 system encodings are limited to two bytes per character.

 To support UTF-8 on Windows, tor would need to rewrite all our filesystem
 code to use the Windows unicode filesystem APIs. This would be a breaking
 change for existing configs, and a lot of work for us.

 As a workaround, please save your torrc file in your Windows system
