SYMPTOMS

Compiling code similar to that in the sample below may cause the following error to be generated:

fatal error C1001: INTERNAL COMPILER ERROR (compiler file 'E:\utc\src\\P2\main.c', line 379)


RESOLUTION

In the sample below, initializing all the local integers to known values, instead of leaving them uninitialized, will allow the code below to compile without generating the C1001 error.
