If the name of Windows user is not written in the Latin alphabet (I have Cyrillic), then ppm produces such an error. How to avoid it?

c:\>ppm
ppm gui failed: DBI connect('dbname=C:\Users\????\AppData\Local/ActiveState/ActivePerl/2404/ppm-MSWin32-x64-multi-thread-5_24.db','',...) failed: unable to open database file

Choose a path for the additional area which uses the Latin encoding, and for which you also have write access.
