Compiler Error C2019

Error Message

expected preprocessor directive, found 'character'

The character followed a # sign but it is not the first letter of a preprocessor directive.

The following sample generates C2019:

// C2019.cpp
#!define TRUE 1   // C2019

Possible resolution:

// C2019b.cpp
// compile with: /c
#define TRUE 1
