Hello,
     I am trying to convert two projects from WIN32 to unicode. The two projects depend on a library that already builds in Win32 Unicode Debug successfully. I'm trying to convert the other two projects over and its not going very well. Here are some of the errors I am getting::::

c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\atl\include\atlconv.h(125) :
error C2440: 'return' : cannot convert from 'const char *' to 'const unsigned short *'

c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\atl\include\atlbase.h(5031) :
error C2440: 'initializing' : cannot convert from 'unsigned short [25]' to 'const char []'

....I have a lot of errors but they all seem to involve the converting of arrays, and they are all in those two header files............

I believe my problem is the compiler can't find the USES_CONVERSTION macro but im not 100% positive.

IF anyone has a solution or can re-direct me towards some helpful documentation (I cannot seem to find any) I would appreciate it.

Thanks A lot,

Do you use

#define _UNICODE

or have that macro set in your project settings?

Are you using

#define UNICODE

in the settings or the code also?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

the errors are occuring with the inline functions within atlbase.h and another file. the functions that are failing are within #define _UNICODE ....but I myself only include the _UNICODE in my project->preprossor settings...not in my code

on a side note....only some of the inline functions that are failing from atlbase.h are actually be called in my application...aka functions that are NOT being called on are stilling failing...that might have something to do their inline decleration though.....

Try defining UNICODE, _UNICODE and FORCE_UNICODE macros in your c/c++ defines
