Asking all users of non-English Windows to use a virtual audio cable (or manually rename their main audio

That was not what I was suggesting. Using the VB-Cable pair was suggested as a workaround for cases when a user could not rename their device in Windows due to their device driver not supporting/remembering the change.

As for the UTF-8 naming issue, I am investigating why that is occurring. The underlying code that retrieves all the audio endpoints defined on the PC fully supports UTF-8. Something is being lost in getting that data over to the main JTAlert executable.
