[Haskell-cafe] stack setup errors when user name has accents

I am new in Haskell, and I am trying to use stack in my "Windows 10" 
machine to study a little more.

Stack installed nicely, but when I run "stack setup" at the command prompt 
I get the following error:

*"Could not parse 'C:\Users\Andr├®\AppData\Roaming\stack\config.yaml':*
*InvalidYaml (Just (YamlException "Yaml file not found: 

*See http://docs.haskellstack.org/en/stable/yaml_configuration/."*

My name is "André" with an accent, and that's the problem, it can not find 
config.yaml at my windows user directory. Is there a way to solve this 
problem, maybe force stack to look into another folder, or something else?

My windows command prompt encoding is 850, I do not not know if this info 
could help. 

Thanks in advance for any answer,
