Python 3.9 freshly installed in Windows 10 to C:\Program Files\Python39, everything done as administrator, installed for all users, added to PATH.

Installation of pyinstaller fails with message "SyntaxError: (unicode error) 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xe1 in position 0: unexpected end of data (, line 21)" (attachment)

This may be due to the character á in my Windows username (0xe1 in ANSI, which is my default 8-bit codepage) being misinterpreted as being in utf8 instead of ANSI.

There is no in my file system.
