   Of-course, squares are not part of the message or hex output. As I said
earlier, they always show up in the MessageBox, my guess is because of
conversion from char * to wchar *. I added this to recv_data(..)

    char msg[1024];
    _snprintf (msg, sizeof (msg), "%02X", (*(Curldata **)usrp)->data));

   Well I agree to some extent, as supposedly, I'm the only one facing
this problem.

   I understand, I'll try if I could do that. But no promise.

Thank you so much!
