in thread stat() and utf8 filenames on Win32 fails for me, why?
You could use inherent Windows functions;a workaround is to use the COM facilities provided by windows (in this case Scripting.FileSystemObject) which provide a much higher level of abstraction than the Win32 api calls.
In your case you could use the GetFile method and then work with the properties of the returned object such as "DateCreated".
Take a look at this Perlmonks node Opening files with japanese/chinese chars in filename and at msdn File Object
