OK, first question: why do you need CATIA models in Windows? Version 4
only runs on Unix and mainframes. If you are using Version 5, you
can't open files with the ± character anyway (this character actually
represents a space; most likely this dates from OSes that can't put
spaces in names). Note that CATIA also converts the / character to
something else since those are illegal in Unix.
There is an option I ran across some time ago ...
Ah. There it is. Read the file
It has various options for filename formats. In particular, you might
have some luck with one or more of the following:
catia.CHARACTER_RANGE_FOR_MEMBER_NAME = 'NT_COMPATIBILITY' ;
catia.BLANK_IN_MEMBER_NAME = 'BLANK_FOR_BLANK' ;
catia.SLASH_IN_MEMBER_NAME = 'SLASH_FORBIDDEN' ;
Note that you should *not* change these in ADMENV.dcls but rather add
these lines to your USRENV.dcls or (preferably) a site-wide .dcls file.
Ask your CATIA administrator for details.
