Thanks for reporting this bug. We've fixed it, by updating pair according to the latest C++0x Working Paper, and the fix will be available in VC11.

If you have any further questions, feel free to E-mail me at stl@microsoft.com .

@Greg: I don't see it there. It mentions an std::pair of CComPtr, which is a different case altogether (that is concerned with implicit conversions).

This case is specifically listed in the breaking changes document for VS2010.

NULL isn't broken, but std::pair, apparently, is.

By the way, if you use nullptr rather than NULL, you'll avoid this issue.

#include "stdafx.h"
#include <vector>

int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
    std::pair<int, const void*> mypair(0, (const void*)NULL);
    return 0;

But that requires a LOT of code upgrades throughout the world !!!
