When compiling the attached program with /O1 (or, by uncommenting the marked line in the source, with /O2.) and /arch:SSE2 the compiler generates incorrect code which causes wrong results to be calculated.

Thank you for the bug report. We are aware of this issue and will fix this in the next major product release.
In the meantime, you may need to workaround the problem by disabling optimization for the affected function.

Thought I may as well post the source of the test case here:

#include <iostream>
#include <cmath>

struct data
    float val;

void func(const data& origin)
    data tmp = origin;
    tmp.val += 1.f;
    int upz = int(tmp.val);
    int z = int(origin.val);
    for (; z < upz; ++z) {
        float value1 = std::sin(z * 2.f);
        // This needs to be added on /O2: std::cout << value << '\n';
        std::cout << z << '\n';

int main()
    data origin = {8.f};
    return 0;
