Passing argument parameters using  __targv[x] with unicode

Last Modified: 2013-12-14

What the trouble is with this code when arguments function (argc , argv ) is used in a UNICODE project. I set in EDI VC6 parameter settings " 10 the_name"

      else if (__argc==4)  //with 3 parametres (@IP + fps + name)
            CString title = pCVgtLanguage->vgt_translate (&ppCLang, L"000001",L"FXCAMD Configuratorfr :");
            CString space = L"   ";
            CString tempo1 = __targv[1];  // here problem tempo1 contain is "1" isntead of ""
            CString str_fps = __targv[2];
            WCHAR* c = L"\0";
            gl_str_int = wcstol(str_fps,&c,10); //get the first number
            CString tempo2 = __targv[3];
            CString full = title + space + tempo1 + space + tempo2;
            Gl_ip = tempo1;

The goal is to have a const char*  ("") for Gl_ip CString variables but the contains is not correct and casting is not good because CString don't like it.

The problem is that  tempo1contain is "1".
What is the problem ? __targv[] is for tchar only ? must I use __wargv[] ?

Thank you
