Collada DOM error when using UTF-8 name for <author>


It seems that Collada DOM (version 2.1.1) gives an error when parsing a collada file when the author is a Unicode name:


changed to:


and the parsing works.

The program using Collada Dom is Unicode based and it is using Collada dom as a static library compiled on Visual Studio 2008 with “Use Multi-Byte Character Set” set.

See the attached file for a complete example.

Does anybody have a fix for this issue?

Kind Regards,
