i have a file named SharedCount.hxx.
i this file i have a class that ovveride operator new.

problem with this is when i want to use this class compiler generate this error

error C2059: syntax error : 'constant'

and error line point to operator new overloading.

exactly this file is modified version of boost shared_ptr.i use these file in another projects without any problem(vs c++ 2010).

please help me to solve this error.
unfortunately original code is very very long to be posted here but if it is required i will post it compeletly

Have you tried implementing the new/delete functions out-of-line (not in the header file, but in the .cc/.cpp file? This may be an issue with some compilers.
