Borland C++ Builder 6 Error: E2015 Ambiguity between...

Hi,

I am new to BCB 6, and have taken over a program which is producing the following error:

[C++ Error] myprog.cpp(150): E2015 Ambiguity between '_fastcall Sysutils::GUIDToString(const _GUID &)' and '_fastcall Comobj::GUIDToString(const _GUID &)'

The statement in question:

...
       guid = GUIDToString(GD);
...

The header file includes are as follows:

#include <comobj.hpp>

#include <Classes.hpp>
#include <Controls.hpp>
#include <StdCtrls.hpp>
#include <Forms.hpp>
#include <ExtCtrls.hpp>
#include <DateUtils.hpp>

#include <Menus.hpp>
#include <ComCtrls.hpp>
#include <Graphics.hpp>
#include <jpeg.hpp>
#include <Grids.hpp>
#include <Registry.hpp>
#include <snmpsend.hpp>
#include <blcksock.hpp>
#include <httpsend.hpp>
#include "synachar.hpp"
#include "PERFGRAP.h"
#include "SHDocVw_OCX.h"
#include <OleCtrls.hpp>
#include <SOAPHTTPTrans.hpp>
#include <Sockets.hpp>

#include <string.h>
#include "voip.h"
         
#include "PERFGRAP.h"

#include "msxmldom.hpp"
#include "XMLDoc.hpp"
#include "xmldom.hpp"
#include "XMLIntf.hpp"
#include <SOAPHTTPTrans.hpp>
#include <Buttons.hpp>

#include "unit2.h"
#include "math.h"
#include "winuser.h"
#include "stdio.h"
#include "dir.h"
#include <windows.h>
#include <process.h>
#include "fstream.h"
#include "lang_tr.dat"
#include "string.h"
#include "HttpThread.h"

//#include "SysUtils.hpp"

//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
#pragma package(smart_init)
//#pragma link "SysUtils"

Please note that the include for SysUtils.hpp has been commented out.

Any help will be most appreciated - the Borland Help is of no use.

Thanks -

Todd

This means that the function GUIDToString exists both in the namespace Sysutils and in Comobj. The compiler cannot choose which one to use. So you have to do that yourself. For example:

       guid = Comobj::GUIDToString(GD);

But it is probably included inside one of the other header files. So it is still included.
