Archicad is not able to start because of a special character in hard drive's name

Affected version(s): Archicad 20 | Severity: workaround applicable | ID: #220872


Archicad doesn't start and the user gets a "Sorry, Archicad cannot run on this computer." alert.
This issue is only in macOS.


If the hard drive's name contains special character(s), for eg. "é", Archicad can't start on it. The workaround is to rename the drive.
