    GetPrivateProfileString problem.

    My program loads some things from a ini file using GetPrivateProfileString. One of the things it loads is the name of the current Color Scheme file (.ocl).
    Once it loads this name to a string, my program should use GetPrivateProfileString to load everything from this ColorScheme file.

    Code:
    int Ini_Read() {
    ...
    ...
      GetPrivateProfileString("ColorScheme", "current", "default.ocl", CurColorScheme, 60,  ".\\obs.ini");
    ...
    return 0;
    }
    
    int LoadColorScheme() {
    ...
    ...
      GetPrivateProfileString("mainwindow", "mwbgcolor", "0,0,0", (LPTSTR)mwbgcolorref, 12,  (LPCTSTR)CurColorScheme);
    ...
    return 0;
    }
    Ini_Read is working perfectly and loading all key values to the respective vars, I could see that through debugging.
    The problem is in this line of LoadColorScheme. GCC is telling me
    C:\project12\setcolors.c
    [Warning] passing arg 4 of `GetPrivateProfileStringA' makes pointer from integer without a cast
    [Warning] passing arg 6 of `GetPrivateProfileStringA' makes pointer from integer without a cast


    CurColorScheme is a global at main.h.
    char CurColorScheme[61];

    mwbgcolorref is a global COLORREF at main.h.
    COLORREF mwbgcolorref;

    Ini_Read is throwing ".\\SomeScheme.ocl" to CurColorScheme which is correct. It´s a totally acceptable path+filename for LoadColorScheme´s GetPrivateProfileString line...
    Does anyone knows how I can solve that problems?
    Thanks

    Ehr...The problem on loading the Color Scheme file is solved lol, i was beeing stupid.

    The real problem is on getting the values from the ColorScheme.ini to COLORREFs... GetPrivateProfileString is loading the values to strings like "RGB(100,100,100)". The question is how do I send that to a COLORREF now?

    Life would be really easy if I could just crTest=crString Or use sprintf or anything I know how to use lol

    Seriously, i got a string like
    crString="RGB(100,100,100)"

    and a COLORREF like
    COLORREF crTest;

    and I need to put the String value inside the COLORREF like
    crTest=RGB(100,100,100);

    Code:

    sscanf(crString, "RGB(%d,%d,%d)", &r, &g, &b);
    
    crTest = RGB(r, g, b);
