In order to call std::async() with a Callable that takes two or more arguments, only the form std::async() which takes a launch policy compiles. Using the form which does not take a launch policy fails to compile.

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

This one was interesting because the C++11 Standard's specification for async() is actually broken, resulting in this error. There are two overloads of async(), one that takes a launch policy and one that doesn't, and while the Standard attempted to make them unambiguous, its attempt was incomplete. I changed our implementation to properly constrain the second overload.

If you have any further questions, feel free to E-mail me at .
