The compiler erroneously replaces a 32bit operation with a 64bit operation, leading to wrong calculation results. This problem occurs only in 64bit and with /O2 or above. The same error seems to occur in VS2010 and VS2013.

According to ginny2016, this bug appears in Visual Studio 2015 Update 3, 2013, 2010, 2008 64-bit mode when an optimizer flag was used (/O2 and /O1).

This appears to be fixed as of compiler version 19.10.25027.
