Hi! Wat's the diferrence betwen debug and release build in MS VisualStudio.Net C++ ? I've got Dirext3D application witch works after debug compilation but release compilation .exe file doesn't load some models. It may be that the textures are too large but why it runs after debug buid?? Shouldn't it be the same?? Thx for reading and help if any.

There are quite a few differences between Debug and Release builds. The most important is in Release mode, unintialized variables are likely to result in bugs that don't get noticed in Debug mode. So you may want to check to make sure that all your variables are initialized before you use them.

Another hint to make your release and debug to match more closely involve compiling your application at /W4 and either fixing every warning or making darn sure that each warning is benign.

Another difference is output size and speed. The size is greatly reduced because it doesn't contain debug runtime code and information.
