If you have the VC++ or the MSDN CD handy. Search for the following topic

This explains some handy macros to convert LPCTSTR -> LPCOLESTR etc.

BSTR is nothing but a typedef of OLECHAR. OLECHAR is nothing but a #def of  WCHAR. This is nothing but LPCTSTR if seen properly. Further down if you use the famous API , MultiByteToWideChar()the output is a LPCSTR.
