FIX: Error when you use a C++ compiler on a Windows Embedded Compact 2013-based device

This article describes a problem that occurs when you use a C++ compiler to compile deeply nested templates that have been inlined on a Windows Embedded Compact 2013-based device. In this situation, the compiler optimizer crashes because of invalid internal compiler data structures. 

Additionally, you receive the following error message:

fatal error C1001: An internal error has occurred in the compiler.

An update is available to resolve this problem. The update requires that all previously issued updates for this product are also installed.
