Hello all, I'm trying to do a string comparison on an LPBYTE buffer and am getting compilation errors. Any ideas?
LPBYTE storeRegValue = NULL;
storeRegValue = new BYTE[255];
........
retCode = RegEnumValue(hKey, i, (LPWSTR)queryValue, &cchValue, 0, &dataType, (LPBYTE)storeRegValue, &dwSize);
	if((_tcsstr((wchar_t *)storeRegValue, "My Docs")) != NULL)
........

The error is in

 if((_tcsstr((wchar_t *)storeRegValue, "My Docs")) != NULL)

That should be

 if((_tcsstr((wchar_t *)storeRegValue,_T( "My Docs"))) != NULL)

You need to use '_T()' or an L here.

BTW, you might want to use that the other way round:

wchar_t storeRegValue[255];
........
retCode = RegEnumValue(hKey, i, (LPWSTR)queryValue, &cchValue, 0, &dataType, (LPBYTE)storeRegValue, &dwSize);
        if((_tcsstr(storeRegValue, _T("My Docs"))) != NULL)
