You would need to switch the hole language of the user to "Chinese".
Or, try with applocale, and use it to run WMP in "chinese mode".

Control Panel->Change Keyboards or other input methods->Administrative->Change System Locale->Pick Chinese Simplified PRC etc or Traditional Taiwan etc based on your needs. It seems like you already did this but Chinese mp3s are showing up correctly under wmp for me.

Hi there
You also need to add things like Chinese (simplified / traditional), Korean and other fonts.

You don't actually need the language packs themselves to display the fonts correctly.
