I would love to, but am intentionally delaying for work reasons. Some
of the team have updated to 15.7.4. Because of my using the older
Microsoft version, it takes only a few minutes to track down the root
cause of a recent issue.

This may not be known to news group members here. But, the Windows
Intel C++ compiler is heavily dependent on the Microsoft supplied
standard library header files (e.g. from 2015:
Similarly, in a Mac oriented post, there is a dependency on the gcc
header files (e.g. from 2013:

I have already submitted an issue with Intel that the Visual Studio
15.7.4 headers cause Intel 18.0, Update 3 to produce thousands of
spurious errors on the std::variant. The 15.6.4 std::variant version
does not cause the invalid error output from Intel. Plus, only the 19.0
Intel C++ is planned to address the problem(s).
