Problem with cyrillic letters in path

Hello!
I have a problem with building my project. Here is the build output:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\JetBrains\CLion 1.0\bin\cmake\bin\cmake.exe" --build C:\Users\Паша\.clion10\system\cmake\generated\3642e6fb\3642e6fb\Debug --target table_reader -- -j 4

Further investigations showed that the bad encoded message is actually a message: "System cannot find the path specified" in russian. I think the problem is because of russian letters in path (C:\Users\Паша\...). In cmake generated files these letters are in win1251 encoding, but "cd" command waits them in cp866 encoding.
So i have two questions:
1. How to fix the problem and build the project?
2. How to make russian letters to display correctly in build console window?
Thanks!

Hi,
technically, this shouldn't be a problem if CMake supports UTF-8 (WinAPI fully supports Unicode, at least from XP onwards).
This is the way to go, not using ancient encoding (blame Windows).
Anyway if that's the case, I think CLion should default to UTF-8 for CMakeLists.
EDIT: I see there's plenty of options under Settings/Editor/File encodings.
Maybe changing project encoding to UTF-8 (and fixing filenames) might help?

Hi Pavel.

We suppose that it's not CLion problem, but problem with using CMake + MinGW, because they don't support non-latin symbols.
To solve the problem you can
1) change use MinGW to Cygwin
or
2) сhange idea.system.path in the IDE_HOME\bin\idea.properties file so it won't contain non-latin symbols (please see https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/entries/23358108 and https://www.jetbrains.com/idea/help/project-and-ide-settings.html for more details).
