When compiling under Windows 10 and including TBufferTransports.h, compilation fails with
Error C2589 '(': illegal token on right side of '::' (compiling source file [...]) [...]\thrift-0.11.0\lib\cpp\src\thrift\transport\tbuffertransports.h 452
The error seems to be caused by the fact that in windows.h a macro max is defined.
Possible work arounds are to define NOMINMAX in order to prevent windows.h to define the macro max.
Alternatively, before the statement on line 452 undefine the macro
maxBufferSize_ = std::numeric_limits<uint32_t>::max()
However, I would prefer a version, where it is checked whether max is defined as a macro, and if so, to use the other, correct syntax for this case of:
maxBufferSize_ = (std::numeric_limits<uint32_t>::max)();
