I hope to get back to that task at some point. Meanwhile would anyone be available to do the testing, Intel could supply a licensed compiler.

Needless to say if Intel supplied a licensed compiler on Windows for
developers who would be willing to test it with their Boost library(s)
that would help solve problems which you are reporting. Whereas
reporting problems with Intel C++ 17.0 on Windows, when it would ne too
costly for Boost library developers to buy a license just to test the
compiler, is not likely to lead to a solution without the developer
being able to use the actual product.
