Description

I define an enum and force the type to __int64

typedef enum MyEnum : __int64
{
	e1 = 0,
	e2 = 1,
	e3 = 4294967296, // 2^32
	e4 = 8589934592, // 2^33
};

The following code causes code analysis to fail with errors about "case value '0' already used":

	MyEnum value = e3;
	switch (static_cast<__int64>(value))
	{
	case e1: break;
	case e2: break;
	case e3: break;
	case e4: break;
	default: break;
	}

Also if I remove the cast to __int64 in the switch-statement, then I get errors about case constant too big for the type of the switch expression.
