Problem with ListView

I have a problem with the Listview. It doesn't display the string in the item correctly. It shows a 'w' (wello), instead of showing hello.
It also shows the headers without Visual Styles.
I show you an image of the program. What can be done?
How do I fix it.

The exe in your download displays the strings correctly on my computer. I wonder if it has something to do with te version of Windows you are running and the locale settings being different than mine. Maybe other WinFBE users can comment on whether it runs okay on their computers. I even recompiled your source and the resulting exe displayed the strings correctly.

Visual themes for the Listview are inactive. That was a design decision because it was the only way I could find to totally enable and have control over ownerdraw of the listview to allow coloring, etc. I will have to revisit the listview again when the time comes to update and improve the framework.

Thank you very much for your help


Works fine on my machine (Win 10, en-us) too. After re-compiling, I tried 32-bit, 64-bit, debug, release. No problems.
