    Reinterpret_Cast in IF Block

    Data Types:

    WCHAR AdapterName[8192];
    // Question 1: WCHAR is only a C datatype yes?
    ULONG AdapterLength = 4096;

    function prototype is:
    BOOLEAN PacketGetAdapterNames(PTSTR pStr,PULONG BufferSize);

    envoking function via

    if(PacketGetAdapterNames(AdapterName,&AdapterLengt h)==FALSE)
    {
    printf("Unable to retrieve the list of the adapters!\n");
    return -1;
    }

    Visual C++ 6 error is
    types pointed to are unrelated; conversion requires reinterpret_cast, C-style cast or function-style cast

    how do i insert such a cast in the condition of the if block?
    If i define WCHAR AdapterName as char AdapterName,
    app runs but
    not correctly..

    trying to port app from c to c++
