Try this:

char *mYtext[] = {"this","is a", "Test"};
lvi.mask = LVIF_TEXT | LVIF_IMAGE;
lvi.iItem = 0;
lvi.isubItem = 0;
lvi.pszText = mYtext[0];
lvi.iImage = 0;l
ListView_InsertItem(GetDlgItem(hwnd,LISTVIEW), &lvi);
ListView_SetItemText(GetDlgItem(hwnd,LISTVIEW), 1,                                    mYtext[1]);
ListView_SetItemText(GetDlgItem(hwnd,LISTVIEW), 2,
