    Receiving build error "An expression is too long or complex to compile..." in Visual Studio 2012 for a (non-centralized) team project that is in active development. It took several days (and a significant amount) of diagnostic man-hours before we figured out it only occurs on developer systems that have the AU v1607 update installed. Uninstalling the update seems to resolve this annoying issue, but that is only a temporary work around esp. if not resolved in next Windows 10 update or patch.

    This is especially frustrating as the error message gives only a very broad idea of source location, making it impossible to isolate the problem method--which is likely part of a third-party 'dll'.
