LPTSTR is defined as LPWSTR (or wchar_t*) when UNICODE is defined.

LPTSTR is defined as LPSTR (or char*) when UNICODE is NOT defined.

>>already use mbstowcs() but the value is different

What do you mean?

mbstowcs()/wcstombs() work fine.

yeah sorry

wchar_t * wc;
LPTSTR lpt = "tthtri";

if I use mbstowcs() to convert lpt to wc, when I convert back to string it become "t22222"

can you give me the code that convert it please

#include <windows.h>
#include <iostream.h>
#include <tchar.h>
#include <string.h>

void main(void)
{

   wchar_t wc[16];
   TCHAR res[16];
   LPTSTR lpt = "tthtri";
   mbstowcs(wc,lpt,16);
   wcstombs(res,wc,16);  
   cout<<res<<endl;
}
