That's a known problem. Your system path environment variable contains some characters with their ordinal numbers in the range [128, 255] which Python has problems with. There are two methods to fix it:

1. Switch to one of the 0.16 pre-release versions
2. Create a FreeCAD.bat file and add this content to it:
set PATH=
start FreeCAD.exe %1
Afterwards you have to double-click the FreeCAD.bat file
