When a lambda function is nested inside another lambda function, the inner one loses the scope of the enclosing block.

I'm using the most current version of VS2010 and this bug seems to be still there (workaround works). Can it get pushed a notch up on the list of priorities? Lambdas are being heavily evangelized by Microsoft and this is a pretty fundamental use case being affected.

I'm also having this problem but I just posted a work around. Hope it works for everyone else. Thanks.

Hi: a fix for this issue has been checked into the compiler sources. The fix should show up in a future release of Visual C++.

I think this should help you out. It worked for me.

int testCapture = 0;
std::vector<std::vector<int>> dVector;
std::for_each(dVector.begin(), dVector.end(),
[&testCapture] (std::vector<int> vector)
    int& innerTestCaptureWorkaround = testCapture;
    std::for_each(vector.begin(), vector.end(),
    [&innerTestCaptureWorkaround] (int currentValue)

I know this is a real pain, it would be better if it was fixed but until then this is what I'm using.
