[SOLVED]winmm.dll doesn't open a file with accented character in file name

I am learning how to use winmm.dll, with a view to replacing WMPlayer.OCX in my zPlayer with it. So far it seems to suit my purpose except for one thing: it doesn't open a media file if it contains accented characters like à or é in the file name. I am on Korean language Windows 11 and I have no problem in reading and wirting these characters in other programs.

I would appreciate it very much if anyone could give me a direction to solve the problem.

Please visit here to see the latest version of my WINMM.DLL Media Player.
