I'm trying to use the new website ("Wolfram Function Repository") and i get the following error:

In[1]:= ResourceFunction["BilliardPolygon"]

During evaluation of `In[1]:= CreateDirectory::privv: Privilege violation for file or directory C:\Users\Juan Jos矁lba.`

During evaluation of `In[1]:= Put::noopen: Cannot open C:\Users\Juan Jos矁lba\AppData\Roaming\Wolfram\Objects\Resources\wordlength.`

During evaluation of `In[1]:= CreateDirectory::privv: Privilege violation for file or directory C:\Users\Juan Jos矁lba.`

Out[1]= $Failed

I have encountered the same problem in others occasions when i tried to use some network functionality. My guess is that Mathematica is using the wrong type of encoding for the directory name (it's called "C:\Users\Juan José Alba"), but i don't know what i can do to make Mathematica use the right directory name.

I'm using Mathematica 12 in Windows 10.

Any idea?

    $\begingroup$ I think this should be considered a bug. That clearly is not what is supposed to happen when you run the command ResourceFunction["BilliardPolygon"] $\endgroup$ – jjagmath Jun 12 at 18:42
