Different behaviors between windows and mac with the Arabic language

I encounter a problem by importing data from an excel sheet. If I choose Arabic as field language, on mac I have a correct result:


arab_mac_osx_ok.jpg

 

the same record in same file,  on windows (same font, I tried both arial MS unicode and Verdana):

 

arab_win_wrong.jpg

 

changing field language in unicode is not an option (the entire text order is wrong).

 

Just to be clear, I've tried also with a new file, with a simple import from a excel file.

 

I can think the problem is on os-level, but the excel on windows file is correct.

 

some suggestion about it?
