CLSID& rPropPageCLSID = // asign some CLSID object;

CLSID *pPropPageCLSID = &rPropPageCLSID;

Hard to tell that is the problem with that little of information, but

void DoIt(const CLSID& pPropPageCLSID) {

CLSID *pPropPageCLSID = const_cast<CLSID*>(&pPropPageCLSID);
}

should work.

Don't give reference a 'p' prefix, as you have given, rather give 'r' prefix.
const CLSID& rPropPageCLSID;

Sorry for not putting more information.

I am working on removing registration from code below:
In this code I need to call       
"RemovePropertyPageFromDisplaySpecifier(
    szClass, // ldapDisplayName of class.
    clsid // CLSID of property page COM object. )"
but this method's 2nd param is expecting "CLSID *pPropPageCLSID"



LONG UnregisterServer(const CLSID& clsid)       //   IDs
{
    // Get CLSID
    LPOLESTR wszCLSID = NULL,  szClass = NULL;
    HRESULT hr = StringFromCLSID(clsid, &wszCLSID) ;

      if (0 == wcscmp(wszCLSID,L"{2514CF64-0748-4b02-B188-F6588DAFD237}"))
            szClass = L"group";
      else if(0 == wcscmp(wszCLSID,L"{346488B3-6864-4864-9334-EBF5EA12528B}"))
            szClass = L"user";
      else if(0 == wcscmp(wszCLSID,L"{9E39D6BF-FBDD-4731-BFFE-741A57DDBA32}"))
            szClass = L"computer";

      RemovePropertyPageFromDisplaySpecifier(
    szClass, // ldapDisplayName of class.
    clsid // CLSID of property page COM object. )

Shouldn't that be

    RemovePropertyPageFromDisplaySpecifier(
    szClass, // ldapDisplayName of class.
    const_cast<CLSID*>(&clsid)); // CLSID of property page COM object. )

then?

Here is the declaration:

HRESULT RemovePropertyPageFromDisplaySpecifier(
    LPOLESTR szClassName, // ldapDisplayName of class.
    CLSID *pPropPageCLSID // CLSID of property page COM object.
    );


I modified the code to below but I'm getting the same error:
Error      1      error C2440: 'initializing' : cannot convert from 'const CLSID *' to 'CLSID *'      c:\Projects\UnityExtProperty\registry.Cpp      623

Thank you.


LONG UnregisterServer(const CLSID& clsid)       //   IDs
{
    // Get CLSID
    LPOLESTR wszCLSID = NULL,  szClass = NULL;
    HRESULT hr = StringFromCLSID(clsid, &wszCLSID) ;

      if (0 == wcscmp(wszCLSID,L"{2514CF64-0748-4b02-B188-F6588DAFD237}"))
            szClass = L"group";
      else if(0 == wcscmp(wszCLSID,L"{346488B3-6864-4864-9334-EBF5EA12528B}"))
            szClass = L"user";
      else if(0 == wcscmp(wszCLSID,L"{9E39D6BF-FBDD-4731-BFFE-741A57DDBA32}"))
            szClass = L"computer";

      CLSID *pPropPageCLSID = &clsid;

      RemovePropertyPageFromDisplaySpecifier(
    szClass, // ldapDisplayName of class.
    pPropPageCLSID // CLSID of property page COM object.
    );

I modifed as follow and it seems to take care of the compiling error for me.
LONG UnregisterServer(const CLSID& clsid)       //   IDs
{
    // Get CLSID
    LPOLESTR wszCLSID = NULL,  szClass = NULL;
    HRESULT hr = StringFromCLSID(clsid, &wszCLSID) ;

      if (0 == wcscmp(wszCLSID,L"{2514CF64-0748-4b02-B188-F6588DAFD237}"))
            szClass = L"group";
      else if(0 == wcscmp(wszCLSID,L"{346488B3-6864-4864-9334-EBF5EA12528B}"))
            szClass = L"user";

            szClass = L"computer";

      //CLSID *pPropPageCLSID = &clsid;
      CLSID *pPropPageCLSID = const_cast<CLSID*>(&clsid);
      RemovePropertyPageFromDisplaySpecifier(
    szClass, // ldapDisplayName of class.
    pPropPageCLSID // CLSID of property page COM object.
    );
