visual studio 2010 – cannot convert from ‘boost::interprocess::mapped_region’ to ‘boost::interprocess::mapped_region &&’ – Education Career Blog

When I try to compile a simple boost application with

#include <boost/interprocess/allocators/allocator.hpp>
#include <boost/interprocess/managed_shared_memory.hpp>

headers in VS 2010, I get the this error message.

I couldn’t understand what the problem. I deleted all the function implementations, there are only c_tor and d_tor but still the same error..

,

You can work around this as shown here. It looks like a limitation in either Boost or the compiler in handling rvalue references.

#define BOOST_NO_RVALUE_REFERENCES
worked. Thanks.
