Running on Windows

UnicodeDecodeError: ‘charmap’ codec can’t decode byte

To solve this,

Windows Settings > Administrative language settings > Change system locale.

Checked Beta: Use Unicode UTF-8 for worldwide language support.

Restarted, everything works well.

Full dicussion check issue 25.

Unable to use any T5 models

T5 depends on tensorflow-text, currently there is no official tensorflow-text binary released for Windows. So no T5 model for Windows users.

Lack development on Windows

Malaya been tested on modern UNIX / LINUX systems that supported tensorflow binary. Windows support not our development path right now (we don’t have any Windows machine here).
