Type conversion problem in enum declaration

RunePerstrup asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-16
I have a type conversion problem with some C# examples from the Fmod Ex sound system for C#. The engine fails, and - for some reason - the fmod team don't seem to be willing to correct their bugs. However, it should be relatively easy to correct... if i only knew why it fails...

The code has a number of declarations. They all work nicely apart from the last one that fails with the error "Cannot implicitly convert type uint to int". This seems illogical since the declaration is preceded by "(unit)".
I am using Visual studio 2005.

    public enum DEBUGLEVEL
        LEVEL_NONE           = 0x00000000,
        LEVEL_LOG            = 0x00000001,

(etc... this is followed by a number of declarations. They all work fine apart from this last one that fails:)

        ALL                  = (uint)0xFFFFFFFF

How can i solve this problem?
