    'LoadLibraryW' Error

    HI ,
    I am trying to compile a code ( that runs in Dev C++) with visual c++ 2008 but it doesnt like to do it and makes complaint that:

    1>d:\main data folder\drosophila_project\myod-for-georgy\myod\myod\common-binding-sites.cpp(27) : error C2664: 'LoadLibraryW' : cannot convert parameter 1 from 'const char [8]' to 'LPCWSTR'

    I have no idea what this means and what to do?
    Any Idea please?

    Yes, you are mixing "ascii" with "unicode" - either add L to your text, or turn off Unicode in the compile options. E.g. L"Mydll.dll".

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.
