We have a project in team foundation server tfs with a non-english character in it When trying to script a few build-related things we've stumbled upon a problem - we can't pass the ลก letter to the command-line tools. The command prompt or what not else messes it up, and the tf.exe utility can't find the specified project.

I've tried different formats for the .bat file (ANSI, UTF-8 with and without BOM ) as well as scripting it in JavaScript (which is Unicode inherently) - but no luck. How do I execute a program and pass it a Unicode command line?

chcp 65001

which will change the code page to UTF-8. You also need to use lucida console fonts
