Maybe I am going at this the wrong way...

Let me explain what the problem is:  I am using D to call a software that uses a Windows COM object to process a file which refers to a bunch of other files.  This file which this COM object uses as input I create using D.  This file is created by my doing a std.file.listdir(fd,"*") and then using those items returned from the listdir.  This works perfectly and I can create the file to pass to the COM object which uses the file paths referred in the created file and everything works.  However, when I have files with accented characters, I no longer have this working.  The COM application fails with "It can not find the path given..." and it gives the path, which interestingly enough, is broken exactly where the accented or extended character is.  I know what the problem is UTF8 vs. ANSI or one of those file kinds.  If I open the file I create, I can see the problem.  It is changing the file I created to ANSI, when it is really UTF8.  This COM object, since it is Windows (.NET to be exact) does not allow me to set the input file, so it wants something else than UTF8, which is what I am creating with D.  So, before I go and try to go through each of those filenames and rename then using URL base strings, is there something else that I can do to make this file be anything other than UTF8?

Thanks for the help.  Just point me to where to start reading...
