The following enum generates one warning per enumeration value:

typedef enum _StdTaskDialogIcons : short int
	TDIconWarning = -1,
	TDIconError = -2,
	TDIconInformation = -3,
	TDIconShield = -4
} StdTaskDialogIcons;

According to several people, the enumeration is OK and should not pop the said warnings.  See http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vclanguage/thread/fc45de2d-e516-4162-9ec4-de5fddc6681f and http://www.cplusplus.com/forum/general/44367/ for details on it from other language experts.

FYI:  I found this problem in Visual Studio 2008, but I was not given the option to post this bug for any other version of Visual Studio other than 2010.

    A fix for this issue has been checked into the compiler sources. The fix should show up in the next release of Visual C++.
    This is a redundant warning. You can safely suppress it.
