ICC 13, update 3 "backend signals" fatal error

ICC 13, update 3 "backend signals" fatal error

Greetings,

Intel: Could you please switch this topic to hidden (so only developers from Intel will have access to it), since I am about to post preprecessed C++ code (confidental) to reproduce crash of ICC on Windows?

TIA!

How could I make a private post?

here: http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/what-is-a-private-post-and-how-...

it says:

you can make use of the forum's \"private post\" feature

but I can't see a button/link "private post" on this page (I have used Ctrl+F in the browser, and tried 2 browsers to be sure).

Marian,

You could send a private message to anybody on IDZ. On Intel C++ Compiler forum I would recommend these Intel software engineers:

Jennifer, Georg, Judith, or Tim.

TimP and Sergey ,

can you navigate me how (where I can click and so on....) to make my post to marks as confident?

I was seeking google, and there is no so thing as "privatee post" feature...

Could you navigate to make private post?

Unfortunately, that feature is Not available since August 2012 ( after upgrade from ISN ) to regular IDZ users, like Marian or myself. What I know is that only an Intel software engineer could switch some thread to Private.

To post a private msg, use the "Send Author A Message" of this posting. Then it will send an email to me.

Jennifer,

regarding problem http://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/topic/390251

I sent private message with preprocessed C++ file, and compile arguments (from MSVC2012 IDE).

NB: FWIW, it is compiled as x64.

PS: Though this compilation profile (in MSVC) is rather outdated and unmainted for fairly long time, I wanted to make it work. So it is possible you'll get compile error when bug in ICC will be fixed, but it definitely should not end up with "backend signals" fatal error/crash, though. So for me, it is impossible to fix this old profile but to mentioned fatal error.

Thank you.

My last post ended up by "admin review" (false positive spam detection), so I repeat it:

An update to this "internal error" issue. It's been escalated it to the compiler team with track number DPD200243580. The 14.0 beta does not have the "internal error". Several work-arounds: use /Od or not use /Qopt-report-file:xxx option.

Thank you very much Jennifer, I will try beta v14.

Regarding v13 update 3, I can'tuse /Od (disable debug) since it is debug profile with visual memory leak detector (from codeproject web site), so it must be compiled with debug informations. Maybe I will try to not use "/Qopt-report-file:xxx", but I will definitely try ICC v14. Is in the public download, or I need to enter "beta-testing program"? I would be very glad and happy to be beta-tester. Please let me know about this option.

TIA!

I don't know if there are more severe cases, but in the one I submitted it was the combination of /arch: and /Qopt-report which failed.  So you could use update 2, settle for /Qvec-report /Qomp-report instead of opt-report, or remove one of those options at a time in use of update 3.

14.0 beta has not yet been provided to us internally at Intel, nor did I see plans about distribution.  Emphasis seems to be on new features such as a menu selection to download components and support for the combination Windows host with linux Intel(c) Xeon Phi(tm).

I have read about beta-testing program on this forum, and I would really like to participate. I have read that this is upon the request. I would really like to enter to test beta versions for my (rather) complex solution. What are the requirements for steps to enter beta-testing program?

Jennifer, have you tried to compile my pre-processed code? are you able to reproduce the crash of ICC compiler?

Yes, I tried, and have filed a bug report to the compiler team.

As for beta program, I'll add you to our invitation list. The beta has not started yet.

Greetings Jennifer,

"<EmitOptimizationDiagnosticsToFile>true</EmitOptimizationDiagnosticsToFile>" i.e. removal of this line from the project, a.k.a. "/Qopt-report-file:xxx" removal of this option solved my issue, though I have a feeling this bug in ICC should be fixed. Thank you very much for this compiler option as a suggestion. Thogh I repeat, this crash should be fixed. Thank you again, and I appreciate your suggestion. Thank you!
