That keyword exist(ed) for the use with compilers that did not understand the 
"using" keyword properly. The example is:

struct Base {
    void f();

struct Derived : public Base {
    using Base::f;
    void f(int);

Compilers that do not understand the using keyword are no longer supported and 
really doubt you have one such old beast.

So, more than likely, you've mis-diagnosed the problem.
