Hudson is running on a Windows XP machine with German locale.
I do the builds of our projects with "Execute Windows batch command", calling Visual Studio with some parameters, e.g. devenv MyProject\MyProject.sln /build RELEASE
With Visual Studio's German locale, the output to the command line contains some German characters like ü and ä. These show up as unknown characters when I look at the log files in Firefox or Internet Explorer.
How can I do a setup which will cause these characters to be displayed correctly?

It most likely has to do with your character set. Is it set for UTF-8? If not you can change either hudson to use a non UTF-8 charset(go to localhost:8080/configure and scroll to bottom of page, click advance and change charset. You need to find out the charset that your instance is currently using), or change the jvm to use german UTF-8(run export LC_ALL=en_GR.UTF-8. You need to look up the valid options for this variable).
Meanwhile I happened to find the solution: in the first command, start with the line
and then the German characters are shown correctly.
