Multi byte path error

I have a problem.

Project type: basic msi (install shield 9)

I ship a setup.exe and a folder named "DATA"

DATA folder contains an "exe" which I call during installation as a custom action. This in turn reads some xml file and fetches a folder name in the same directory where I have DATA folder and makes some deployment changes etc.

My problem: The setup works fine on unibyte folder name, but if I have the folder name in multibyte the "exe" is unable to read that location and fails and is unable to make any deployment changes .

Any suggestions.
