//Example Code from C++ Standard:
// Compiles with XCode [LLVM 3.1] and GCC 4.7
// Fails with VC2012
#include <chrono>
using namespace std::chrono;
void f(nanoseconds d) { // d.count() == 3000 when passed microseconds(3)

int main(int argc, char * argv[]) {
 duration<double> s(1./3);  // 1/3 of a second

 //Call below fails to compile with Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 RC   04167-004-0009005-02951 
 //ERROR: ...\microsoft visual studio 11.0\vc\include\chrono(543): error C2440: '<function-style-cast>' : cannot convert from '_CR' to 'std::chrono::nanoseconds'
 f(duration_cast<nanoseconds>(s));  // round towards zero in conversion to nanoseconds

Is this issue implemented in VS2012 update 4? I just encountered the error on my system and fixed it by correcting the parentheses.

Thanks for reporting this bug. We've fixed it, and the fix will be available in the next update to our C++ Standard Library implementation.

The problem was indeed caused by a misplaced parenthesis. I've carefully verified that all of the parentheses are now correct, and I've added a regression test for good measure.

Note: Connect doesn't notify me about comments. If you have any further questions, please E-mail me.

I ran into this issue today too, it looks like there's a misplaced parenthesis in duration_cast on line 544 of <chrono>:

static_cast<_CR>(_Dur.count())) * static_cast<_CR>(_CF::num)));

should be:

static_cast<_CR>(_Dur.count()) * static_cast<_CR>(_CF::num))));
