I am trying to write my first Win32 application using Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Express Edition.
However instead of getting "Hello World" I am getting what looks like Japanese text in the window.
What am I doing wrong? I thought I was getting "Hello World"

Panic over. Apparently I was using TextOutW (or so).instead of TextOutA. That makes all the difference

Using wrong routine. This is the first time I have come up against Unicode and ANSI options.
