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

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

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
