digitalmars.D.learn - object.Object to void*

Greetings.

After upgrading dmd to v1.018, I am getting this error,

C:\cygwin\home\us319318\source\d\jic\libs\COM\Object.d(326): Error: cannot
implicitly convert expression (value) of type object.Object to void*

which worked fine with version 1.009.  Here is the code that is causing this
problem,

  static VARIANT opCall(Object value) {
    VARIANT v;
    return v.vt = VT_BYREF,
      v.byref = value,
      v;
  }

How can I fix this?  Sorry if this has been posted before, but I could not find
this in digitalmars site.

thanks,

jic

I think you forgot to cast the value.

According to the changelog, this conversion stopped being implicit in 1.007, so it shouldn't work with 1.009 either. Either cast or compile with -v1 or -d (can't remember which one it is).

1.007, 1.009, 1.018, tomato, toh-mah-toh... :-) Kidding. Ok, thanks, casting it worked. thanks.
