When running the agent updater on windows command line, special (non-ASCII) input characters were not handled properly. This is now mitigated by applying proper codepages to input from command line arguments and the user's stdin-input.

Please note that there might still occur some issues with special characters within the windows command line, caused by limitations of the underlying shell, depending on your system's configuration.
