I have a website that allows users to upload files. Some of those files may contain special characters, such as chinese or japanese characters in the file name. While my upload piece works fine, I call a DLL that was written in VB6 that does some processing of the file (saves meta data to the database).
my problem lies in trying to read these files with special characters in them. I haven't been able to find a way to encode these characters, the only thing I can find online is to encode entire files by creating a memory stream and encoding the bytes as the go into memory, then write it to a file. What I want to do is simply encode the file name so I can access it and its path in my VB6 dll.
