You should really look at _MSC_VER instead of _CPPLIB_VER which is undocumented and unsupported. (The story is that _CPPLIB_VER is a Dinkumware macro, and Microsoft doesn't promise that we'll always keep it, or remember to update it for each major version. _MSC_VER is the compiler major version macro, which for customers outside Microsoft always corresponds 1:1 to the STL implementation.)
