Experiment does not start


A few minutes ago I downloaded the new version of PsychoPy (StandalonePsychoPy-1.85.4-win32.exe).
I tried to generate a simple intro text screen ("Welcome to the experiment2). When I run the experiment I get only the following output:

File “C:\Program Files (x86)\PsychoPy2\lib\site-packages\psychopy\visual\”, line 57, in
from psychopy import core, platform_specific, logging, prefs, monitors, event
File “C:\Program Files (x86)\PsychoPy2\lib\site-packages\psychopy\”, line 44, in

File “C:\Program Files (x86)\PsychoPy2\lib\encodings\”, line 16, in decode
return codecs.utf_8_decode(input, errors, True)
UnicodeDecodeError: ‘utf8’ codec can’t decode byte 0xf6 in position 32: invalid start byte

Can anybody help me?

I also have the same problem. Using Psychopy 1.85.4 for Windows, I tried to run an experiment which consists some videos. And there’s this error: UnicodeDecodeError: ‘utf8’ codec can’t decode byte 0xbb in position 3: invalid start byte.

Anyone knows what this means and how to solve this problem?

Thank you!
