    Then you'll need to work out what encoding the program is outputting. (That's the problem with Unicode; it doesn't self identify.)

    Try posting a few lines of the output from running the following command:

    dumptorrent.exe the.file | perl -nle"print; print unpack 'H*', $_"

    Perhaps the output will allow someone to recognise the encoding being used.
