Backend Signals error when compiling code including Intel® Cilk™ Plus headers

Reference Number : DPD200159529


Version : 2011


Product : Intel® Parallel Composer


Operating System : Windows*


Problem Description : When compiling multiple files in a Visual C++ project with the Intel® C++ Compiler or compiling multiple files on one command line, you may see a backend signals internal error if the files are using Intel® Cilk™ Plus header files.  You can confirm this issue applies to you if you can compile any one source file without seeing the backend signals error.


Resolution Status : Our developers are working towards a fix for this issue.  If a workaround is needed, please contact us via User Forum or Intel® Premier Support.  This issue does not exist in the Intel® C++ Composer XE.
