hello, all,

  A COM server (VC6.0) which requires a string with unicode characters from client (VC6.0), therefore I defined a BSTR variable in COM server interface. it looks like:

//COM server
CCNStServer::GeneralBrowser(BSTR name)
{
.....
}

On client side, my code looks like:
//COM Client
_bstr_t name("xxxxxxx"/*unicode might be inside of this string*/);
theApp.GetServerHandle()->GeneralBrowser(name);
...
 I found that only Ascii characters can be passed to COM server, I have no idea where  those unicode characters are!, anybody can help me?

thanx in advance
