Win10 build error: UnicodeDecodeError: 'gbk' codec can't decode byte 0x91

Hi, could you please help checking this? Thanks!
Followed the tutorial step by step, can’t pass this one, tried several times:

PS C:\dev\anki> .\run

C:\dev\anki>set PYTHONWARNINGS=default

C:\dev\anki>call .\bazel.bat run  //qt:runanki -k --

----------------
Note: The failure of target //ts/lib:genfluent (with exit code 1) may have been caused by the fact that it is running under Python 3 instead of Python 2. Examine the error to determine if that appears to be the problem. Since this target is built in the host configuration, the only way to change its version is to set --host_force_python=PY2, which affects the entire build.

If this error started occurring in Bazel 0.27 and later, it may be because the Python toolchain now enforces that targets analyzed as PY2 and PY3 run under a Python 2 and Python 3 interpreter, respectively. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7899 for more information.

Manually appended , encoding='UTF-8' to the two open places, so the line became

modules = json.load(open(strings_json, encoding='UTF-8'))

And then rerun, it passed and finished building, running now :smiley:

Thanks for the report, I’ll make this change to the code.
