ASCII Character problem in Windows XP

Mr_Fulano asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-21

Hi, I'm using VB.NET2010 (VS2010), WinForms. I have a Form with a Textbox. At certain points of adding text to my Textbox, I add a "check" character, which is ChrW(10004). It works very well in Windows Vista and in Windows 7, but in XP I get a little square box. Obviously, XP cannot recognize the ASCII character I'm trying to add to the Textbox.

Is there something I can do to avoid this?

I thought of adding an image, but its a Textbox, not a RTB. --- I should be using a RTB and add an image?

Thanks for your advice.
