you renamed only name in Windows, but your home directory contains still 
chinese characters. Windows joke :-)
tlpmgui 1.75 report before starts about problem with TEMP. In my opinion 
it's better way than during installation.

You have to set TEMP environment variables to e.g C:\TEMP.
IMHO ideas private Temp in path "C:\Documents & settings\user name\local 
settings\sra ta ta\Temp" is stupid.
