It's nothing to do with StdoutRead(): chkdsk and many other command line utilities shipped with Windows use traditionally OEM charset, while AutoIt (as primarily GUI app) uses ANSI or corr. Windows codepage.

You have to apply a charset conversion before using OEM strings in AutoIt, something like:

$ret = DllCall("user32.dll", "BOOL", "OemToCharW", "wstr", $line, "wstr", "")
If $ret[0] Then $line = $ret[2]

Thanks Doudou for helping Just a small typo

$ret = DllCall("user32.dll", "BOOL", "OemToCharW", "str", $line, "wstr", "")

I thought it was another unicode problem

comment:4 follow-up: Changed 5 years ago by anonymous

$ret = DllCall("user32.dll", "BOOL", "OemToCharW", "str", $line, "wstr", "")

Didn't work with Vietnamese. Any idea ?

Replying to anonymous:

$ret = DllCall("user32.dll", "BOOL", "OemToCharW", "str", $line, "wstr", "")
