There is your unicode support for the listview :P
Thanks for the suggestion, but unfortunatly that wouldn't work...

Character set 178 is the Arabic character set. This will not display for example Chinese, Russian, Turkish, etc...

You could let it display some specific DBCS characters for a specific language, but only if you set the proper characterset (like in your example), install and set the proper unicode font for that characterset and change your local region settings in Windows (and even then there are some other pitfalls).

So what this is truely used for (the .Charset) is to adapt a control to a specific localized windows, not to display unicode in general.

There isn't any "trick" you can do to make it unicode; Instristic controls in VB6 simply do not support true unicode, nothing you do will change that.

I've used the richedit control 6.0 SP2 with the font set to "Arial Unicode MS" to display unicode in my translator. And I have to change (re-set) the font each time the text is changed or something like that, i think.

In fact, as Cookie says, unicode support is very limited in VB, however strings are stored in unicode internally... irony? :P

RE: Messenger Plus! Sound Library Fixer
Hmm... it said it installed but my sound list for WLM+ remains the same.
I think it's installing the sounds into my OLD soundpack...

In my Program Files there is a "Messenger Plus! 3" and "Messenger Plus!" Live.

All my old sounds are listed but yet they are not reappearing, can anyone help me out? I ran the tool as instructed.

EDIT: Okay, all my old sounds are in
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Messenger Plus!\Custom Sounds

...this presents me with something weird. I cannot locate my new ones that are connected to Plus! Live.
I think it is this "disconnection" that is redirecting my sounds back with the program, as yet I cannot locate the sounds from my Messenger Plus! Live.

Can anyone help?

EDIT2: Okay, I found that "Messengerplus3" was still installed, so I used Control Panel to remove it. Rather stupidly, I thought this would redirect the old sounds to the new Messengerpluslive.

What it actually did was remove all my old sounds too. Bugger.
Oh well, never mind. Still have no idea why the tool failed to function though...

Oddly, it removed my current sounds too.
So Msg+3 was able to take my Msg+Live sounds with it. Yet Msg+Live couldn't touch my Msg+3 sounds o.O.

RE: Messenger Plus! Sound Library Fixer
The reason it failed to import your sounds into MsgPlus! Live is because this version was specifically wrtten for MsgPlus 3.xx.

MsgPlus! 3.xx stores its sound information in the registry under the key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Patchou\MsgPlus2\Nobody\CustSounds,

whereas MsgPlus! Live stores it under:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Patchou\Messenger Plus! Live\GlobalSettings\CustSounds

and so whenever you run the tool it will only write to the MsgPlus! 3.xx registry setting (hence why the sounds didn't show up in MsgPlus! Live)

If you had all the sounds in your library in 3.xx, then installed WLM + MsgPlus! Live, I'm not sure why your sounds weren't automatically imported though...

I hope you know what I mean, I'm not very good at explaining stuff :P

Maybe its time the tool was updated for MsgPlus! Live support Cookie? (a)

At the end of the about screen you're referring to www.msgplus.net, which isn't available anymore.

You should fix that. ;)

And add a note for Windows Live Messenger, to let people know that Microsoft changed their trademark from MSN to Windows Live.

Nothing to fix...

www.msgplus.net still works, the trademark hasn't changed (WLM is a new trademark) and copyright/trademark info is valid for when a program was compiled (you don't need to change a program when trademarks change; that would mean every program ever created must be updated constantly).
