Given that permissive- will become the Visual C++ compiler's default mode of operation in the future, it is better to handle this now so future compiler upgrades will not cause issues. Problems here are very easily solved with explicit casts

I'll experiment with switching off -Zc:wchar_t- in this change, will report back on any results
