Reginal Settings

I running a Windows NT 4.0 and the Regional Settings are set to Swedish.
When I'm calling GetLocaleInfo to get the digit grouping symbol which is
a space character with ascii 32 it returns a space character but the
ascii is set to -96. Why ????. When the digit grouping symbol is set to
a comma it works just fine.

Here is the code:
char szThousandSymbol[10];
GetLocaleInfo(LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT, LOCALE_STHOUSAND, (LPTSTR) szThousandSymbol, sizeof(szThousandSymbol));

Did you check what value returned GetLocaleInfo?

-96 (signed char==char) equal 160 (unsigned char) equal space in windows-character set (ANSI). So it's all ok.
I get also -96 for my Russian locale (of course, it is strange, but it's not error).

You can invoke

   char buf[10]=" ";   // just space character
  SetLocaleInfo(.....,LCID_STHOUSAND,str);

and then check GetLocaleInfo. It will return 32!
