if user is using special - not ascii characters in windows 7 account name game freezes when entering tactical mission,

this issue was discovered on Slovak special letters, after created user account with pure acsii letters the mission started normally

it is probably matter of quoting the paths when loading dlls which is different to unix quoting

Steps to reproduce this issue
under windows 7 create user account with Slovak letters (for instance používateľ) in name and run the game under that account

after starting skirmish or tactical mission in campaign the game will freeze
