can't open file with StgOpenStorage

I'm trying to deal with compound files using MFC. I've found some samples in MSDN and test it. But when I try to write my own code with StgOpenStorage it fails - I've got result - STG_E_FILENOTFOUND , that Indicates that the specified file does not exist.
I can create conpound file, but I can't open it after.
Could you help me  - what's wrong with my code?
#include "stdafx.h"
int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
IStorage *pIStorage;
HRESULT hr;
TCHAR szFileName[MAX_PATH + 1];
TCHAR fname[MAX_PATH + 1];
HANDLE hConsoleInput, hConsoleOutput;
DWORD dwCharsOut;
LPTSTR szPathText = TEXT("Enter Path And File Name Of File To Be Created \
  \nOr Enter 'x' to Exit.\n\n\n");

ZeroMemory(szFileName, sizeof(szFileName));

hConsoleInput = GetStdHandle(STD_INPUT_HANDLE);
hConsoleOutput = GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE);

WriteConsole(hConsoleOutput, (LPVOID)szPathText,
lstrlen(szPathText), &dwCharsOut, NULL);
    scanf("%s",&szFileName);

if (0 == (lstrcmp(szFileName, TEXT("x")))){
exit(0);
}

hr = CoInitialize(NULL);
    if (hr!=S_OK) {
printf("failed COM initialize\n");}
    hr=StgOpenStorage((const WCHAR *)szFileName, NULL, \
STGM_DIRECT | STGM_READ | STGM_SHARE_EXCLUSIVE, NULL, 0, &pIStorage);
....

Thank in advance!

->(const WCHAR *)szFileName
You should not do this to convert a char to WCHAR string.
You'd conver it by API function.
continue.

However,if you all use neutral text-manipulation,you should define Unicode .

1:Use
MultiByteToWideChar()
2:Declare it as wchar_t*

Thanks!
Now it works (though I've met other problem with IStorage - I can't enforce CopyTo method work. It seems I'll post next question soon :-)

Sorry for delay and thanks again.
