Ladybug start component how to make it fly

Why does my ladybug component not say ‘Viiiizzzz’ ladybug flying? instead it says ‘defaultFolder - out’
Why is Ladybug not working?

Thank you

Hi - do you have any non-ASCII characters in the path name? What is the output from the out port of that component.

If your name in your native language contains non-latin letters or you run your computer in some language other than English, your path might contain letters that the Ladybug tools don’t like.
