error C2440: 'reinterpret_cast' : InterlockedCompareExchange from detail\interlocked.hpp

Joseph Marks

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.

 

Joseph

InterlockedCompareExchange only works with LONG, and casting is not a good way
around the problem. Perhaps you want InterlockedCompareExchangePointer, which
works with PVOID?
