I am trying to delete a unicode name picture using MFC application, but I couldn't delete it.  When I debug, the name shows as '???????.bmp', how can i convert this to some ascii characters.  I am able to delete this file from windows, but not from the application.   I just want to know what makes windows to delete this file and How can we delete this using MFC application without making PC to support unicode( from control panal->language).   Thanks for your help in advance.

How are you compiling your application ? ANSI ?? if so try to compile it as UNICODE so that you can access UNICODE strings within your application..

Also have a look at function WideCharToMultiByte() to convert UNICODE to ANSI.
