QuestionAsc(string character) returns wrong value chinese win10 machine Pin

Hello
I am working with a piece of VB6 code that reads data from an instrument through the USB port.
The instrument uses an FTID USB chip and the data is read by the host byte by byte from the USB bus using a driver supplied by FTID.

Each data byte is returned as a string character and then converted using the function Asc(string).

The problem is that on Windows 10 machines running chinese, the data returned is corrupted.

I think this may have something to do with the longer (2 bytes per character instead of one) character coding used for chinese but I have not been able to understand the issue.

Any suggestions?
