    int i;

    puts("Test with class MyStruct:\n");
    #pragma omp parallel for if(m_MyStruct)   // C3027
    for (i = 1; i <= 2; ++i)
        printf_s("Hello World - thread %d - iteration %d\n",
                 omp_get_thread_num(), i);

    puts("Test with int:\n");
    #pragma omp parallel for if(9)   // OK
