Respect that the Windows environment is using wchar_t. So use _wgetenv to get
the variables and convert them to utf8.

I would also check if the registry access has to be adapted (using the ...W
variants of function calls).

I'm located in Switzerland and prefer english versions too. It is difficult to
work in different locations like San Diego and to share equipment.
But you can always create unicode filenames of documents (Windows >= W2K ;-).
