>> adi->protocol = "slrrp";
All such assignment operator gives compilation error

You need to use strcpy(...) function

Something like this
strcpy(adi->protocol, "slrrp");

Change other statements similarly.

Good luck !

use strcpy()
strcpy( adi->protocol, "slrrp");
strcpy( adi->major_version,  "1");
strcpy( adi->minor_version, "2");
strcpy( adi->patch_number, "1");

>> 332:     adi->protocol = "slrrp";
>> 333:     adi->major_version = "1";
>> 334:     adi->minor_version = "2";
>> 335:     adi->patch_number = "1";

This is the corrected statements
strcpy(adi->protocol, "slrrp");
strcpy(adi->major_version = "1");
strcpy(adi->minor_version = "2");
strcpy(adi->patch_number = "1);

what you are  trying to do is to assigne a const char type pointer to a char pointer. What you should be doing is this

strcpy(adi->protocol, "slrrp");
strcpy(adi->major_version, "1");
strcpy(adi->minor_version, "2");
strcpy(adi->patch_number, "1");

the final error is that you have used a type which is not defined properly, to solve this problem either do this

342: ARPI_ERROR_CODE setCallback((* ARPI_CALLBACK)(char  *buffer) rb)
{}

or this
#define ARPI_CALLBACK  ((* ARPI_CALLBACK)(char  *buffer))

ARPI_ERROR_CODE setCallback(ARPI_CALLBACK rb)
{}
