I want to make a new configuration type where I do not link with the debug libraries (like release mode), but I can still walk through code. What configuration options break proper step-through debugging on release? Thanks, Ben

Compiler optimization causes code to be reordered in such way that the source code position is not in any way guaranteed to correspond with the current instruction of the program being debugged.

You can use external "release" libraries when debugging your own code, but if something causes an exception in the said libraries, you don't get to see it's source without debugging information.

Take the debug mode settings and change the libraries linked in to release mode libs. Don't turn on any optmizations.
