Visual Studio 16.7.3 compile error with Win SDK 10.0.19041.1: C2632 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently updated MS VS (from VS12) and SDK, started to recompile a legacy C++ app and receiving a C2632 error that appears to be thrown from SDK: 


    1>C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Include\10.0.19041.0\shared\rpcndr.h(193,23): error C2632: 'char' followed by 'int' is illegal

    Running out of ideas. 

    Did find this on net but not sure how to find the guilty header file amongst my output:

    It explains how to turn on 'show includes'

    Project Settings -> Configuration Properties -> C/C++ -> Advanced -> Show Includes

    @Nico238 Yes, thank you! I found out there was an old GtGui included. This caused the errors.

  • Hi JimUPS,

    You could open rpcndr.h file with notepad as adminsitrator, then correct the declaration which is like this:

    typedef unsigned char int;

    And I have checked the file on my side,  'char' should be followed by 'boolean'. Please try to uninstall the win 10 SDK then re-install it.

    Best Regards,
