Same thing here - it seems WIN10 uses utf-8 internally (but a specific
locale can be set for applications not supporting utf-8). So far I have not
come across any problems apart from the warning message, but my experience
is limited.
If there really are no issues with this configuration, it may make sense to
have an option to disable the warning.
