shell.openExternal(path) does not work well if there are non-ascii chars in the path


#1

I want to open a dir in local disk on windows, but noticed if there is some chinese chars in the path, it does not work

you can reproduce it by create a dir called “测试” and try to open that path

( I am using electron 1.1.1 as there is serious bug in later electron version )
