Compiler Warning (level 1) C4533

Error Message

initialization of 'variable' is skipped by 'instruction'

An instruction in your program changed the flow of control, such that, an instruction that initialized a variable was not executed. The following sample generates C4533:

// C4533.cpp
// compile with: /W1
#include <stdio.h>

struct A
{
   int m_data;
};

int main()
{
   if (1)
   {
      goto Label;
   }

   A a = { 100 };

   Label:   // C4533
      printf("\n%d", a.m_data);   // prints an uninitialized value
}
