I am unable to compile a small snippet of C++ code that tries to call a bound lambda function through a std::function variable.

Thanks for reporting this bug. We've fixed it, and the fix will be available in VC11. Here's an example:

C:\Temp>type meow.cpp
#include <functional>
#include <iostream>
#include <ostream>
#include <string>
using namespace std;

int main() {
    int value = 42;

    auto myBoundLambda = [&](const string& header) {
        cout << header << value << endl;

    function<void ()> myFunction = bind(myBoundLambda, "Answer to life is: ");


    value = 1729;


C:\Temp>cl /EHsc /nologo /W4 meow.cpp

Answer to life is: 42
Answer to life is: 1729
