Hi, I'm getting a ridiculous mistake in my program. In the Visual Studio 2012 professional version, the following code fragment gives an error like this:

for (int i = 0; i < MAX_CLIENTS; i++)
      client[i] = { -1, INVALID_SOCKET };

Error is;
1	IntelliSense: expected an expression
error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '}'	
error C2059: syntax error : '{'

What I have tried:

I tried to change something in the project properties but it did not work well If you have been experiencing problems with such a description before, please help me

client[i] = { -1, INVALID_SOCKET };
That is the syntax to initialise a structure but you are trying to set the elements of an existing structure.

You have to use something like
client[i].member1 = -1;
client[i].socket = INVALID_SOCKET;
// Create and initialise an instance to be copied
ClientType emptyClient = { -1, INVALID_SOCKET };
// ...
client[i] = emptyClient;
