As it turned out, we decided to revert the switch to use MSVC2010. There was a mysterious crash in climaker with MSVC2010 that didn't seem easy to figure out.

So we are still  using MSVC2008 which does not have nullptr (or at least, where just using 0 to initialise pointers works fine in those contexts where MSVC2010 wanted nullptr or an explicitly cast 0).
