Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
The hotfix adds a new /Qsafe_fp_loads switch. Using the /Qsafe_fp_loads switch together with the /fp:precise option and the /arch:SSE2 option works the same as using the /fp:except option and the /arch:SSE2 option. You can manually add the /Qsafe_fp_loads switch. To do this, locate Additional options in the Command Line page.
