I have a MFC project with dialogs with Cyrillic letters. I am compiling it on Windows XP with VC++ 2003.

On my system, in "Regional and language options", "Language for non-Unicode programs", the appropriate language (Bulgarian) is selected and everything is OK.

However, many users who use the application have on their systems "Language for non-Unicode programs" English. I can not force them to change that option and would like my application to work properly even in that case.

However, when "Language for non-Unicode programs" is English, some resources do not display Cyrillic characters. For example, Menus are OK but labels and buttons does not display Cyrillic characters.

What do you think is the simplest way to correct this problem?

Thanks in advance!
