FIX: "IF" condition does not work correctly when you run a Visual C++ application that is developed in Visual Studio 2010 SP1

Consider the following scenario:
  • You use Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) to develop a Visual C++ application.
  • The source code of the application meets the following conditions:
    • The source code contains an IF statement in a nested loop.
    • The IF condition contains a check that determines whether a signed integer variable is negative and also a check that determines whether the signed integer variable is larger than another number.
    • The code that is outside the IF condition has a linear function that uses the signed variable.
  • You compile the application by using either Visual Studio 2010 or the command prompt.

    Note You compile the application while a compile option is enabled.
  • You run the application.
In this scenario, the IF statement does not work correctly.
