Error C2593: Operator = is ambiguous
Why does the above assignment give this error? It works in VC6. Does not compile in VC9.
revrsetagcacheiter->second is of type
Hence it won't compile. I don't think it will compile in VC6 also.
I'll try one final time: Is your BasicString class c_str() method ? If so try converting it to wstring using
At a guess, VC6 allows more than one user-defined conversion to be applied, while (correctly) VC9 does not. Take a look at C++ implicit conversions for discussion of the general problem.
The general solution is to supply the needed conversion yourself, rather than have the compiler try to do it.
Try to cast what your assigning to the correct type.
strCurTag = (wstring)revrsetagcacheiter->second;
Better yet, you may have meant:
You should usually avoid implicit conversions, i.e. make all of your assignments work with exactly the same type at one side and the other, especially when it's trivial to know which types are involved. Relying, or trying to rely, on implicit conversions isn't a good idea.
strCurTag = static_cast<wstring>(revrsetagcacheiter->second);
doesn't compile, then we should start thinking about the problem.
