Getting a Error trying to make an DLL Injector

error C2440: '=' : cannot convert from 'char [13]' to 'LPCWSTR'

The error message really says it all, the types in the assignment are incompatible, I guess the code looks something like

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. char text[] = "Hello World!";
  2. LPCWSTR pointer=text;
Your problem is that the type LPCWSTR is a wide character type based on the underlying type wchar_t which is incompatible with char.

mbstowcs() can be used for conversion to wide char representation.
