If you open this txt in notepad, you can save it as unicode

I don´t think that it´s possible to use one of these inside of a batch file.

Did you take a look at the command-line options mentioned in the discussion at Super User?
Wikipedia (Batch file » [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batch_file#Character_set]Character set[/url]) wrote:Batch files use a DOS character set, as defined by the computer, e.g. Code page 437. The non-ASCII parts of these are incompatible with the Unicode or Windows character sets otherwise used in Windows so care needs to be taken. Non-English file names work only if entered through a DOS character set compatible editor. File names with characters outside this set won't work in batch files.

To get output in Unicode into file pipes from an internal command such as dir, one can use the cmd /U command. For example cmd /U /C dir > files.txt will create a file containing a directory listing with correct Windows characters, in the UTF-16LE encoding.

«nconvert.exe -clipboard -out png -o asd.png» does not create any files. Worked fine before.
D:\tools\XnView>nconvert.exe -clipboard -out png -o asd.png
