We have recently come across an issue for which we need help with . We use intel C compiler and we have automated all our builds. automated scripts use the approach described here: http://software.intel.com/sites/products/documentation/doclib/stdxe/2013/composerxe/compiler/cpp-win/index.htm#GUID-8BC0A95C-99A5-4981-A02D-19CD6985E05B.htm
This has worked fine for last 4 years without any issue.
Very recently we have started facing a problem which looks like a bug. The main issue is that when we follow this article and make a command line build the build completes but devenv.exe never exits. It appears that this bug is caused by a recent microsoft update. The same works fine if we set the project to use ms compiler in place of intel compiler. So it is difficult to prove if it is an intel or ms issue.
We have reproduced the issue on two different machines (win7 x64, win8 x64) with a one line "hello world" project in VS2008.
This used to work fine untill couple of weeks ago. Has any one else faced this issue ?
Any tips on how to debug the issue will help
