I'm using Visual C++ 2008 Standard in an MFC program. When I try to compile the following piece of code, it gives me an error: CString str; double d=3.1415; str.Format("%f",d); AfxMessageBox(str); On the third line, it says: error C2664: 'void ATL::CStringT<BaseType,StringTraits>::Format(const wchar_t *,...)' : cannot convert parameter 1 from 'const char [3]' to 'const wchar_t *' What do I do to convert a double to a CString? It seems like this should work. Can anyone figure out how to stop this error?

You're compiling in unicode but have specified an ansi format string. Either prefix the format with 'L' or set the compiler to ANSI (preferred).
