Changing current system locale for non-Unicode programs

"Maktabah Shamela - arabic language not showing properly"

Greeting you.

Im using MacOS High Sierra. Second day..
I have installed Wine 1.8.6 (then tried 4.0.1)

I need this for executing program named Maktabah Shamela which is also in your appDB:

https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager. ... &iId=19409

APP Launched with NO Problems. BUT. It doesn't recognize arabic letters properly.

So you can look there in detailed informations about application (click 3.64) there are test results.

You can see Workarounds for application there:
______________________________

First of all, to get it display Arabic language properly, follow the instructions here : https://abuhirr.wordpress.com/2013/12/20/syamilah/

Notice that you may have to uncomment the line "ar_SA.UTF-8" in you /etc/locale.gen and to run "sudo locale-gen".)

Run "winetricks wsh57 vcrun6".
_______________________________

So. These workarounds as I understand all for linux/ubuntu
But I cant do it on my Mac.
Generally this application has problem with unicode. In WINDOWS it requires changing current language for non-unicode programs to Arabic (Saudi Arabia). So that UTF-8 will read properly.

I have tried many ways to configure this.

winetricks - allfonts / corefonts;
DOS > intl.cp configuration to ar-SA;
registry> machine/system/currentcontrolset/control/nls/locale..
or codepage..
or USER/control panel/international/local..

tried to ad .ttf files manually;

changed safari/view/unicode/ to utf-8 and etc.. forget how much. Working about more than 10 hours. Nothing WORKS.

Any ideas?
