Short description of error
Rendering with Cycles will cause Blender to crash immediately, even with just the default scene, if the Blender file is saved at a certain file path.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Here is a video showing the behavior:

-If I have not saved the Blender file, it works.
-If I have saved the Blender file on C-drive, it works.
-As soon as I save it on D-drive on a folder called ELÄMÄNHALLINTA, it crashes.

Could this be related to having scandinavian letters in the file path? It's weird, because when I tested from D/ä/ it did not crash!

Hey there,
I remember some changes were made recently regarding this. So just to make sure we don't waste any time here, could you please try this with a recent build from buildbot?

Thanks for the report @Andy Bay (Geminoidi)!


I now downloaded blender-2.72-690345a-win64 and can confirm that the exact same behavior continues. As soon as I try to render the default scene with cycles, and have saved the document at D:\\ELÄMÄNHALLINTA\crash test 2.blend it crashes. If I save the document in C-drive (or don't save it at all) it works.
