On Windows you often have LPTSTR string and you need to convert them
A LPTSTR depends on the UNICODE environment found on the Windows System. If UNICODE is defined an LPTSTR is the same as an LPWSTR.
In this case we are dealing with a wide string. Here an exaple how you can convert it to a QString.
ui.setupUi(this); //setup some user interface
LPTSTR testStr = L"and I am a LPTSTR defined in the Windows headers!";
QString qtTestStr = "This is the pure QString... ";
qtTestStr += QString::fromUtf16(testStr); //concatenate
ui.plainTextEdit->setPlainText(qtTestStr); //set it as text to some UI widget
