I understand that my problem originates from the letters in my username which apparently are non-ascii and very Nordic. I just have absolutely no clue how to get around this. I'm on Windows 10 64bit and QGIS is 2.14 Wien, not 2.14.1.
I don't really want to create a separate user account only for QGIS. Is there a way I can make QGIS "understand" my filepath without changing my username's lettering. What's weird is that I've not had any problems using QGIS with this error message popping up every time I start the program. Every analysis I've churned out has checked out accurately. The headache this error has given me has been purely cosmetic as far as I know.
So is there a pain-free workaround?
Here's my error message poem:
