Is it possible that your error message was copied incorrectly? Line 429 is an assignment from 'void *' to 'unsigned char*', not to 'unsigned char'.
Such an assignment is allowed in C (and the type is implicitly converted), but not in C++. Is it possible, that you are including this header in a module compiled with a C++ compiler? Note that this is an internal header file and not meant to be included by third party software.

Betreff: OpenSSL compilation errors in Windows
I am using openssl 1.1.c from our product code. While compiling the code, I am getting the errors which can be suppressed as warnings using -fpermissive flag in Linux (gcc/g++). In windows, I am getting the same compilation errors in visual studio (2005). Would like to know the alternative of -fpermissive flag that can be used in visual studio to suppress the errors.
I tried adding the flags such as '/fpermissive' , '/Ze' in module properties->C/C++->command Line->Additional options. But it did not resolve the problem.
Getting the errors like below. ssl/packet_locl.h(429) : error C2440: '=' : cannot convert from 'void *' to 'unsigned char 'Conversion from 'void' to pointer to non-'void' requires an explicit cast
Since it is giving error in Openssl code, we cannot make any code changes there. Has anyone faced this kind of issue?
Please let me know how to resolve this issue.
