you're trying to assign a variable with the const or volatile qualifier to a variable that doesn't have that qualifier.

Can you show the code that generates the warning, as well as the definitions of the variables used in that line ?

void AddBSMaybe(LPSTR pszPath)
{
      int nPos;

      nPos = lstrlen(pszPath)-1;

      /* if no backslash, then add one */
      if(pszPath[nPos] != '\\')
            lstrcat(pszPath,"\\");
}

At what line does the warning occur ? Because I don't see anything wrong here that could trigger this warning.

That's because the _access() function expects a const char* as first argument :

sorry for the C4090 warning. It happens in another function coded before AddBSMaybe()

Thanks for your help
