FreeCommander XE 2020 Build 840 32-bit public

Create an empty file with name 股.txt and XXX股YYY.txt on Desktop.
Open Search files tool and search 股 in the Desktop directory.
Find nothing.

My OS: Windows 10 en-US
My PC settings:
Region: Unite States
Region Format: Recommended [English (United States)]
Language for non-Unicode programs: Chinese (Simplified, China)

File explorer can find them but FreeCommander can't.

Try to set the PC as below:

Win+q -> Region settings -> Country or region: United States ->
Regional Format: Recommended [English (United States)]

Press Win+r -> control intl.cpl -> Administrative -> Language for non-Unicode programs ->
Change system locale... -> Current system locale: Chinese (Simplified, China) ->
Keep uncheck the line below: Beta: Use Unicode UTF-8 for worldwide language support ->
Press OK -> restart computer

It should reproduce the problem.
