    win32 Hello word program - Chinese characters printed

    Just out of interest I compiled a simple message box example from a Win32 tutorial. It works, but the message is printed in Chinese when I run it. Can anyone tell me why this could be happening? Is it something to do with Unicode?

    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    
    int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, 
        LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow)
    {
        MessageBox(NULL, "Goodbye, cruel world!", "Note", MB_OK);
        return 0;
    }

    Oops...found the solution, the character set was set to Unicode in the configuration properties of Visual C++
