Hello all,
I have written a function that used _mbscat and _mbscpy to change string to hexa string but it gets error. Please help me to solve this problem. Here is my function:

int StringToHexString(unsigned char * Source)
{
     char buffer[MAX_LEN_PASSWORD];
     unsigned char password[MAX_LEN_PASSWORD];
     int i;    
     password[0] = '\0';
     int len = strlen((char *)Source);
     for (i = 0; i < len; i++)
     {
          _ultoa(Source[i], buffer, 16);
          if (strlen((char *)buffer) < 2)
               _mbscat(password, (const unsigned char *)"0");

          _mbscat(password, (const unsigned char *)buffer);
     }
     _mbscpy(Source, password);
     return 1;
}

Do not try to help me to write another function. Just help me to make it better. Error just appears on Win2k.
Thanks.

What about this question:

Are you ever going to resolve it?

Why should an expert waste time on this question if you're likely to just leave it hanging as well?

Use '_mbslen()' instead of 'strlen()' - don't mix up the ANSI, UNICODE and MBCS functions.
