how to enable unicode chars in vs2005?

I just got a new workstation - which I had to reload VS2005 (myself). On my
old workstation - the VS2005 supported unicode chars in the text of controls.
On the new workstation - I just get the little squares when I try to copy a
unicode char in the text of a control (like a menu control - specifically a
down arrowhead). How can I make this (these) unicode char useable in my apps?

While I am at it - when I deploy the app(s) the unicode char will show up as
a little square on a lot of user workstations - how to enable unicode chars
for deployment?

Thanks,
Rich

Thanks. That did the trick on my local machine. I hope it sticks on the
user's workstations when I deploy this new copy (from my new workstation -
the development workstation).

I have a file which has no BOM and contains mostly single byte chars. There are numerous double byte chars (Japanese) which appear throughout. I need to take the resulting Unicode and store it in a DB and display it onscreen. No matter which way I open the file, convert it to Unicode/leave it as is or what ever, I see all single bytes ok, but double bytes become 2 seperate single bytes. Surely there is an easy way to convert these mixed...

Hello, I'm writing an class library that I imagine people from different countries might be interested in using, so I'm considering what needs to be provided to support foreign languages, including asian languages (chinese, japanese, korean, etc). First of all, strings will be passed to my class methods, some of which based on the language (and on the encoding) might contain characters that require more that a single byte.

This may look like a silly question to someone, but the more I try to understand Unicode the more lost I feel. To say that I am not a beginner C++ programmer, only had no need to delve into character encoding intricacies before. In c/c++, the unicode characters are introduced by the means of wchar_t type. Based on the presence of _UNICODE definition C functions are macro'd to either the normal version or the one prefixed with w. Because...
