A very strange error has started to show up recently when using Intel C++ included with Intel Parallel Studio 2011 in Visual Studio 2010. Searching for this error in the forums suggests that it may be caused by using options like /Qipo and /Qparallel together, but this project has none of those options set. Even more, the error only shows up when I use many threads for Multi-processor Compilation. If I keep this number low (1 or 2), the error does not pop up. The whole process takes longer, though.My PC has a Core i7 with 4 cores and HT, but setting the number of simultaneous files to compile to 4 or 8 triggers this problem somewhere during the build process. I thought the problem could be caused by lack of RAM (3GB XP limit), but it does not seem to be the case. Now I am using Windows 7 64 bits with 8GB of RAM, and the problem still pops up.The strange thing is that this problem just decided to show up out of nowhere, and it does not seem to be linked to any specific file. As mentioned before, with 1 or 2 files at a time it does not occur.Do you have any ideas as to what may be happening?
