I tried to use the following script to convert shapefile to mif:

ogr2ogr -f "MapInfo File" D:\docs\arcgis_data\shp_mif\BOU.mif D:\docs\arcgis_data\shp\BOU.shp

it works.

But I found that if the name of the shapefile has non-ASCII characters like this:


Then the covert will fail with message:

Unable to open datasource `D:\docs\arcgis_data\shp\臺北.shp' with the following drivers

Any idea to fix it?
