Consider the following scenario:
For example, the void function (enum eType) method is generated as void function (enum meType) in the .tli file.
Note The .tli file and the .tlh file are generated automatically when you compile the project.
Additionally, you receive one of the following error messages when this issue occurs:
error C2371: '<identifier>' : redefinition; different basic types
error C2556: '<identifier1>' : overloaded function differs only by return type from '<identifier2>'
error C2511: '<identifier>' : overloaded member function not found in '<class>'
This issue is triggered by a problem that occurs when spaces are parsed in large .tlb files.
