LPCTSTR is the "const char *"
LPSTR is the "char *"
fro ANSI builds
they are both fully interchangable
if you are not going to change the context (or going to if you want)

so no need to strcpy( ) it

just do casting

CString str = "string";
LPSTR lpstr = (LPSTR)(LPCTSTR)str;

will get the pointer to Cstring's buffer
