The maxsdk and boost both have the base_type methods.

Tried to include the boost::serialization namespace to to avail

Thanks

Try different include order and do not to use "using namespace ..." (if you have any in your .cpp).

You can also wrap one of the includes into another namespace everywhere you use it that should fix your issue as well. You should be very careful with using namespace <bla> as these will import all the names in that space into the current namespace and potentially pollute it.

namespace MAX_SDK
{
#include <maxsdk.h>
}

not enough actual parameters for macro 'base_type'

This implies maxsdk has a preprocessor macro 'base_type'.  Try using a replacement library that works with code written in the 1990s or later.

C preprocessor macros do not have namespaces and any header that uses them like that is bad software.  You might be able to work around the problem by adding an "#undef base_type" after the #include for your maxsdk headers.
