Bug report IVF Composer XE 2013 Update 2 Visual Studio crashes opening Fortran source file

Affected Version:  Intel(R) Visual Fortran Composer XE 2013 Update 2 ( version / build 20130118 )

Symptom:  Visual Studio 2010 environment will crash when opening a Fortran Source file

Root cause:  the Visual Fortran Integrations into Microsoft Visual Studio introduced a bug in the Update 2 compiler.  Fortran source files containing:

interface assignment(=)

will cause Visual Studio 2010 to crash.  There is currently no workaround for this error other than not opening files containing this interface in the Visual Studio editor.  projects with such files can still build, just avoid opening the file for editing in the Visual Studio editor.

There will be a fix in a forthcoming IVF Composer XE 2013 update.
