This returns in both cases the same value.
Is there a way around this problem at all?

VC6 is pretty strange, I agree. In particular, it doesn't handle
functions with non-type template parameters well. The following code
should demonstrate the problem. (Hopefully I'm remembering the problem
correctly -- I don't have VC6 installed on this machine.)

template<int I> void foo() { std::cout << I << '\n'; }

int main() {
   return 0;

If you must use VC6, avoid non-type template parameters for function
