Problem with umlautes (non ASCII chars) in Windows

I need to get the "Computername" from a Windows PC, but if
the computername contains non ASCII chars I get odd characters.

Also, the global variable (%Computername%) from inside LiveCode does
not display non ASCII chars correctly.

I also tried to use the CMD with the command "hostname", which
displays the name correctly in the commandline window but not inside LiveCode.

Can someone with more experiance on a PC help ?
