The code that you have added is really nasty. At the very least, you
should be using WideCharToMultiByte to convert the UCS-2 characters,
instead of just truncating them. Ideally though, the code should be
converted to call the Unicode versions of the registry APIs and then to
use MultiByteToWideChar to process UTF-8 and ASCII (CP_UNIXCP?) files.
