I can't input files with umlauts/non-ascii on windows 10.

\input grüße

Any difference if you use only one of the two "odd" characters, as in :


\input grüe


\input grße


Here I get (Windows 7 Enterprise, 64-bit)

D:\temp>copy con grüße.tex
        1 file(s) copied.

 Volume in drive D is HDD 1 (Win 7 Data)
 Volume Serial Number is C21D-9491
