Cause

none

Solution

To deactivate a compiler warning you can use the #pragma keyword. //this will save the compiler warnings #pragma warning(push) //this will disable the warning 4290 #pragma warning(disable: 4290 ) //and this deactivates the 4786 also #pragma warning(disable: 4786 ) //here comes your C++ code wich will not generate //any 4290 and 4786 warnings anymore //here we restore the warning state we saved in the beginning #pragma warning(pop) //here comes no code or the rest of it, which might //generate the 4290 and 4786 if it was defined before the push
