Performance decreased after Unicode Support to application RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All Expert,

          I provided Unicode support to my application and for that I used std::wstring, wchar_t and unicode/wide version of windows function.

    I also had to convert the string from UTF8 to UTF16 and UTF16 to UTF8 on many places in code.

    I also localized all error/warning messages and string literals for porting application in multiple languages. Now I am facing the Performance issue with our application. The performance has been decreased more than 25 percent and it is very huge.

    May you expert suppose or suggest that which are the cause of performance decrease of application 

    Please help me for this if any one know any thing about it.

  • Hard to tell without code. MBCS-Unicode should be what the OS doing anyways before the switch. 

    Where is .Net coming into play? I don't see any mention of .Net here.
