I do not use 'å' (aring) in my paths to zim or zim workbooks. This
must be something which is picked up from somewhere else on my
computer. It is a corporate installation of Windows

There may be some norwegian characters inside the zim workbook itself,
but the default zim workbook is an all-english one.

Where does zim store its configuration on windows? I should probably
look inside those files in case there is old cruft.

Thanks for your efforts.
