It's a known problem.

1. download the .zip (no-installation) version and unpack it to a directory whose path includes only Latin letters, or
2. create a Windows user whose name has only Latin letters (this works only because I see that Russian versions are only partially localized)

It is fixed in a development branch, but that branch hasn't been merged with to-be-0.8 yet.
