Dallas Temprature Compilation errors


I am trying to compile my temprature code,but i am getting the errors below;

C:\Users\kitiku\Documents\Arduino\libraries\DallasTemp\DallasTemperature.cpp: In member function 'bool DallasTemperature::validAddress(const uint8_t*)': C:\Users\kitiku\Documents\Arduino\libraries\DallasTemp\DallasTemperature.cpp:67: error: invalid conversion from 'const uint8_t*' to 'uint8_t*'

Please assist

. . . which you're not going to show us?

Don't forget the code tags.

Welcome to the Forum. To help us help you, please read and follow the Forum's posting guidelines as spelled out in the two posts by Nick Gammon at the top of this Forum. They will help you get more responses to your questions.

below is my code,

I have all the libraries installed.But the errors are reported on the .cpp file.

#include <EEPROM.h>
#include <SPI.h>
#include <Ethernet.h>
#include <OneWire.h>
#include <DallasTemperature.h>
#include <Exosite.h>
// Pin use
#define ONEWIRE 7 //pin to use for One Wire interface
// Set up which Arduino pin will be used for the 1-wire interface to the sensor
OneWire oneWire(ONEWIRE);
DallasTemperature sensors(&oneWire);
