I have no idea why you are getting this error. The code compiles OK as either C or C++ using Visual Studio.NET 2008.

Try taking out the register type qualifiers.
Try changing 0xFFL to 0xFFuL.

Rather than just posting the lines of code you think are the problem you might want to try posting the entire function or at least more of it if it is very long.

Is either into or outof a #defined macro?
