Draw russian text

yifatyifat Posts: 1Member
hi all,
In my application i used the function CDC::ExtTextOut() to draw text but then i had a problems with text which is not english (few different languages).
To solve this problem I changed it to use the ExtTextOutW() func, and it worked (for Hebrew for example), but not for Russian text.
I know for sure that the text is fine when it gets to this point of code but when it appears on the screen - its gibberish.
(I know that vc++ 6 doesn't work with Unicode, there for i set the PC to use Russian when it has a non-unicode text, but it didn't solve the problem.)

Doe's someone know what can solve the problem?
Maybe I should use other function of writing? which?
Maybe I should transform the text to different form?
