illegal character .. compiler error

I just installed the oneAPI compiler (with Visual Studio 2019) and converted existing projects (with settings from Intel 19.1). But now the compiler returns errors for Unicode strings with special characters "illegal character in character literal".

Example

lpwcT = wcschr (lawcText,L'§');

Which setting should be activated for this?

Hi Frank,


To compile c/c++ programs you must install HPC toolkit along with Base Toolkit. The base toolkit does not include classic C/C++ Compiler.

Please install HPC toolkit and try. Let us know if you still face any errors.

Yes, that was the purposeful hint. After the installation of the HPC everything is now running correctly.

 

Thanks
