Issue with strings containing numbers in set container

I cannot retrieve any string from a set container if the string has numbers in it. I am able to successfully retain any string that contain only characters, but if I add a string to the container that contains even one number I receive an error when trying to retrieve it using wprintf(). See my code below:

typedef basic_string<wchar_t> tstring_t;
typedef set<tstring_t> tset_t;
tset_t groupsFound;

wchar_t bufName[MAX_PATH]; (this is populated by another function)

groupsFound.insert(bufName);

_tprintf(_T("# of elements in groupsFound: %i\r\n"), groupsFound.size());

for (tset_t::iterator it=groupsFound.begin(); it!=groupsFound.end(); ++it)
{
	_tprintf(_T("%s\n"), *it);
}

Please use
_tprintf(_T("%s\n"), (*it).c_str());

Using the tstring_t class (or any other class) is never safe as a const char* replacement with the argument list in the format.
