Executed instruction not valid for specified chip (PENTIUM4)

I encounter the following error message with the latest version (7.39-win) of Intel SDE, when I attempt the "-p4" switch. What is the preferred way of using the "-p4" switch?
 
TID 0 SDE-ERROR: Executed instruction not valid for specified chip (PENTIUM4): 0x7ffbaa344fa2: syscall
Image: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll+0xa4fa2
Function: ZwSetEvent
Instruction bytes are: 0f 05
 
The message shows up before the first line of my simple console program. I am on Windows 10 Home and Visual Studio 2015 community edition.

Try "-chip-check-exe-only" (no quotes).  When simulating older processors you will encounter "newer" instructions in thing that are out of your compilation control (system runtime libraries, etc.)

Thanks, it works! However, the program unexpectedly exits at a MOVSXD instruction in x64 build......

48 63 40 04  movsxd rax, dword ptr [rax+0x4]
