Installing WDK 1809 enabled Spectre mitigation flag by default in VS2017 C++ projects RRS feed

  • Question

  • https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/problem/348985/installing-wdk-1809-enabled-spectre-mitigation-fla.html reported the issue that the SpectreMitigation flag does not obey the 'inherit from parent' default, so needs to be set globally, or everywhere.

    This is not useable in our environment, as there are a number of projects we want mitigations on, but for the vast majority (hundreds) we need it turned off.

    The thread suggests that there is a fix in the works, and to inquire in here for the status of it. This is that enquiry.
