I am trying to create a shortcut/file on to user desktop. Its failing with out any clue.
I am creating a short cut in "C:\\Documents and Settings\\username\\デスクトップ\\link.lnk"

I am getting an error telling that the file name, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect. All the Windows API call using this path is failing. I am able to create files and shortcuts in C:\\Documents and Settings\\username" but not inside C:\\Documents and Settings\\username\\デスクトップ" folder. The API is working fine it has got something to do with the data representation.
Normal file creation is also failing. The code extract is
