Supporting Command line parameters with special characters

Hi,

I have a little problem passing command line parameters with special characters to the PortableApp launcher.

More specific, I would like to open a search URL in Chrome or Firefox and pass a certain search term. It works if I pass the arguments to the applications directly, but when I pass them to the GoogleChromePortable.exe then the special characters will be replaced with question marks.

Example:
chrome.exe https://www.google.com/search?q=Привет
works

GoogleChromePortable.exe https://www.google.com/search?q=Привет
will open as https://www.google.com/search?q=??????

I wonder if there is or will be support for this.

Thank you!
