Yes, I have finally managed to compile all the tests and bench files (and
concept) with Standard edition (no otpimisation) and all run OK and
debug and the bench tests in release. I am still working on the tests using
release mode. There is a modest speedup in release, factor of a few say for
some benchmarks, no change for others.

But I had to change several test properties and had great trouble with

/Zm1000 is enough for all.

However I suspect a fault in the compiler /Zm setting business.

Once the heap overflow is triggered, it seems to fail whatever the /Zm
(it doesn't start compiling, but immediately bombs out).
I got rather confused but eventually suceeded.
I think that restarting the session after changing to /Zm1000 is needed.
Perhaps a clean does it too - I was puzzled.

No warnings at level 3, but need to enable MS language extensions.
Prpper for conformance can be on.

I am still working on this.
