  • I just spent a day uninstalling and reinstalling Visual Studio 2003 and then recompiling my code.  It was due to my colleague Dudley hitting a bug in the service pack, and there being no way to uninstall the service pack.

    By the way, the bug was an optimiser bug that did not occur in debug code.  We had to crawl over the asm listings to find it.  In trying to remove a load/store pair, the optimiser changed a reference to an array of unsigned long from [ecx+edx*4+4] into [ecx+edx*4+1] (which is not the address of an array element)
