Compiler Warning (level 3) C4278

Error Message

'identifier': identifier in type library 'tlb' is already a macro; use the 'rename' qualifier

When using #import, an identifier in the typelib you are importing is attempting to declare an identifier identifier. However, this is already a valid symbol.

Use the #import rename attribute to assign an alias to the symbol in the type library.
