This is impossible in plain C. Underlinded text is a special font or character attribute. For which OS do you need this.

Message boxes cannot display underlined text.

Create a custom dialog with a static text control, and in the WM_INITDIALOG handler of said dialog create an underlined font and set it as the control's font.

Something like that:

    LOGFONT font = { 0 };
    HFONT   hFont;

    font.lfUnderline = TRUE;
    font.lfPitchAndFamily = VARIABLE_PITCH | FF_ROMAN;
    hFont = CreateFontIndirect(&font);
    SendDlgItemMessage(hwnd, IDC_TEXT, WM_SETFONT, (WPARAM)hFont, MAKELPARAM(TRUE, 0));
