Did you notice that you are type-casting a string to a PWideChar?
Maybe the compiler does special hidden conversions to make this work,
but I would not be so reliant on hidden behaviors.

If I were you I would do it like this:

  wProgram: widestring;
  wProgram := UTF8ToUTF16(sProgram); // or whatever other desired
conversion routine

   BufferSize := GetFileVersionInfoSize(PWideChar(wProgram),nHWnd);
