Template like the following may fail (under SFINAE context, so it's quiet failure) when both parameters are same type, and type T is a pointer to template specialization

template <typename T, T> struct same_ { typedef void* type; };

Outside of SFINAE context, similar code works as intended.

Ooops, code posted at 16/01/2012 at 12:13 is not working workaround, it disables SFINAE.

Thank you - great to know this is fixed!

For those stuck with the current version, here is workaround:

template <typename A> struct testme{};

typedef char true_;
typedef int false_;
template <typename T, T> struct same_ { typedef void* type; };

template <typename A>
struct has_path_
typedef testme<int> A::*f;
static false_ select(...);
static true_ select(typename same_<f, &A::path>::type);

template <typename A>
struct has_path
enum { value = sizeof(has_path_<A>::select(0)) == sizeof(true_) };

struct get
testme<int> path;

int main()
int t[(int)has_path<get>::value];

    A fix for this issue has been checked into the compiler sources. The fix should show up in the next release of Visual C++.
