Code compiled with the /Og option can cause incorrect calculation for doubles. In some cases, it loads only half of a double's bytes into memory causing incorrect results in later calculations.
Disable global optimizations.
Global optimizations can be disabled for the entire project or for a particular source file by removing /Og from either the project's release build compiler settings or an individual file's release build compiler settings.
Note /O1 (minimize size) and /O2 (maximize speed) are composite switches that include /Og. If you are using /O1 or /O2 disable global optimizations by adding /Og- to the appropriate compiler settings.
Global optimization can also be disabled on a function by function basis through the use of #pragma optimize as follows.
