hi juan -- no it should work, i just gave the example on my machine.   
Grace uses a juce call to return the directory in which it will unpack  
its documentation in so it does not depend on english pathnames.

however the browser location is a problem -- on windows there is no  
way that i can find to launch a browser with a local url (eg  
so i had to use a stupid test to get anything to work.
(on osx i just use 'open ...'). on linux i cant remember , maybe i  
just look in /usr/local/bin and /usr/bin for firefox.
