Hey, i'm a SW developer and i build a software using VS 2015, i was able to compile it and work with it since then,
Now, I want to upgrade our developing-tools and use VS 2022, so the first thing that I am doing is to download a trial version of VS2022 to test it out.
I open the project file, build the dependencies, and everything works great except one thing, let's say, for example, i had some 4 rows of inputs in main-dialog, if the string length is lower than 16 characters, inside turns to some Gibberish or weird symbols..
The project is defined as _MBCS.
my main question is how much changed in terms of Unicode & MultiByte between VS2015 and VS2022 and what should i start looking for?
