OpenSSL compilation errors in Windows

We are using OpenSSL APIs in our product code. We are not making any changes in OpenSSL. Our product code is a C++ code and it makes use of openSSL APIs for some functionality.
This compilation error we are getting in Linux and windows platforms. But in Linux, we have a '-fpermissive' flag which is suppressing those errors as warnings and so compilation is getting successful.
The issue here is in Windows , we are not able to find alternative flag for -'fpermissive' in Visual studio and due to that compilation is unsuccessful. It would be helpful if anyone suggests some option to get the compilation successful.
Thanks and regards,

I haven't had a chance to compile the exact OpenSSL version using g++ compiler as stated by the user/poster.
If this user is using a modified or altered version of OpenSSL provided source code, is there support available? Don't get me wrong, I don't mind helping out but .....
I'll try to compile OpenSSL source code this evening and I'll post my findings here.

> OpenSSL code is compiling without any issues. When it is used from our product code and while compiling using C++ compiler, the issue is seen.
As I wrote previously, the error you posted was caused by the fact that you are compiling Ansi C (a.k.a ISO/IEC 9899:1990, a.k.a C90) source code
using a C++ compiler. While C permits a cast from 'void *' to 'anytype *', C++ doesn't allow it without an explicit cast.
Only the *public* OpenSSL headers are guaranteed to be includable by a C++ compiler (they contain the necessary ` extern "C" ` blocks, etc.),
not the internal headers. Including *internal* headers is neither supported nor possible with a C++ compiler. And as Matt Caswell already told you,
there are no compatibility guarantees for those headers.
