Subject: [Boost-users] error C2440: 'reinterpret_cast' : InterlockedCompareExchange from detail\interlocked.hpp
From: Joseph Marks (jmarks_at_[hidden])

Apparently, the signature of this function has changed.


When we used it under Visual Studio 6.0 it compiled correctly however,
the following happens in MS VS 2008:


The following error appears

error C2664: 'InterlockedCompareExchange' : cannot convert parameter 2
from 'PVOID' to 'LONG'


If I just do a cast, I get:

error C2440: 'reinterpret_cast' : cannot convert from 'DWORD' to 'long'.


Does anyone have any suggestions?


Thanks in advance.
