UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xe9 in position 17: invalid continuation byte

Hi,

I am confronted with ERROR (MainThread) [root] Uncaught exception
Traceback (most recent call last) during execution of:

[python.exe -m homeassistant]

on a Windows 10 machine with Python 3.8.5 on it. It stopped with the message

UnicodeDecodeError: ‘utf-8’ codec can’t decode byte 0xe9 in position 17: invalid continuation byte

Unfortunatly I was not able to find the solution on the web.

Thanks in advance,
LLL

Does your username on Windows have an ‘é’ character in it?
