>how to do convert a std::string to LPTSTR (chat *) datatype

There is no way to do that, what you can do (and possibly what you
need) is this:

std::string s;
LPCSTR pS = s.c_str()

Modern windows programming is best done using a Unicode build, for which
LPTSTR is a wide character string. Also, to convert a std::string to a
C-style string without copying you can only obtain a constant string

Perhaps you really want something like the following

typedef std::basic_stri ng<TCHARtstring ;
tstring str = _T("Hello world");
LPCTSTR buf = str.c_str();
