Issues with songs with certain letters in filenames

I thought this issue would vanish after Windows 10, but it stays the same under Windows 11 as it was under Windows 7.

Namely, Winamp can't seem to read and play songs which contain certain Latin characters with "accents" in their filenames. They are cataloged with Media Library, loaded and shown in the playlist window, but their length is not displayed and they are always skipped.

So far I've identified two or three such characters (č and either i or e with one of the diacritics: / or \ ). It's super weird also because it has no problems with Chinese, Hebrew, Cyrillic, Arabic, etc.

Any idea how to solve this, apart from replacing those with plain "c" and "i"?
