Steps to reproduce:
0. Download jre8u20-b10
1. Mkdir with name ���������� in your system, e.g. C:\����������
2. Install jre8u20-b10 to the dir ����������: change destination folder to ���������� when you install test jre by double clicking jre-8u20-ea-windows-amd64.exe
3. If jre8u20 can't be installed under the dir ���������� and an error dialog shows up, then this bug is reproduced. See attachment install-error.png

Expected behavior: jre should be installed under folder ����������
Actual behavior: jre can't be installed under folder ����������

There is no such issue with jre8-b132 and jre8u20-b08. This issue starts to show from 8u20-b09.

Followed the steps to reproduce using 8u20 b19 PIT I successfully installed the standalone jre and the jdk with the jre into the non-ASCII folder
