I browsed the forums but I found no mention of a feature, still surprisingly missing in DJView 4.
If a file name is given (either by file double click or by using the "File | Open" menu) which contains non-Latin1 chars, DJVu4 fails.
As the DJVu format is very used in China, I have lots of DJVu files which cannot be open. Time to support Unicode?
P.S.: I'm not from China, but I work with files from China.
Should work now.
See "DjVuLibre+DjView-3.5.22+4.5-Setup.exe" on the sourceforge download page
Unicode file names work perfectly here (Linux Ubuntu hardy with djview 4.5).
Can you give some additional details ?

Ooooopps, sorry! I use DJView 4.5 (the latest stable) under Windows XP, no luck here.
I'll try to port all my DJView-related stuff under Ubuntu (I have jaunty, but it should not make a difference, would it?).
And by the way, thanks for your very fast answer (which cannot be said of my own!).
I believe I now understand the origin of this problem...
It still doesn't work, using the latest version from the download page (WinXP
Pro SP3 US English). The files work fine once renamed to an all-ASCII
filename, but cannot open with a name containing Chinese characters.
Unable to replicate.
I can open a file named "汉字.djvu" under both Windows and Linux.
I just tried with File->Open on Vista Home Premium, US, up-to-date.
Okay, I played around with it a bit and discovered that I can open a file
with characters in the title from DjVuLibre. What doesn't work is opening it
from within Explorer (e.g. by double-clicking the filename). A small window
flashes for a moment with the title "Opening DjVu file" then closes, but the
program doesn't open. So I guess the issue is in the shell handler.
Another area in which non-ASCII filenames are not working: Export As PDF fails
("System Error: Invalid Argument") with a filename containing Chinese
This windows specific problem is now fixed in CVS.
Now this is a matter of recompiling the windows version and rereleasing.
