I added the system\src\error_code.cpp to an empty project and can
compiled it with success. So I guess there must be something wrong
with the default compile options, but I donnot know how to fix it.
Could anybody help me out? Any help would be appreciated!

That's a MSVC problem, one of the project settings, I haven't figured it out
yet. Same source code with different project settings will compile without
any warnings. Since it's microsoft speicfic try
microsoft.public.vc.language
