I am facing an issue regarding unicode text.
In a ATL dll project I am using LDAP to get data from Active Directory. Following is the sample code.  

IDirectorySearch *pDSSearch;
hr = pDSSearch->SetSearchPreference(rgSearchPrefs, ARRAYSIZE(rgSearchPrefs));
hr = pDSSearch->ExecuteSearch(strFilter, pszAttr ,dwAttrNameSize, &hSearch );

					for(size_t x=0; x<col.dwNumValues;x++)
						CString name = col.pADsValues[x].CaseIgnoreString; //fails for unicode text

The line CString name = col.pADsValues[x].CaseIgnoreString; works fine for English text, but returns '???' for other languages. For example if the Active directory contains any user's name in Chinese or Japanese text '邮箱' then CString name shows '???' instead of the actual unicode text.
The same code works properly in another MFC Application project but fails for this ATL dll project.

Project settings are :
Configuration Type : Dynamic Library(.dll)
Use of MFC :      Use MFC in a Static Library
Use of ATL :       Static Link to ATL
Character Set :  Use Unicode Character Set

Cannot trace what I have been missing out. Please help.
