Hi folks! Just a quickie: Is there a difference in the lib file that is created when compiling a dll betweeen the debug and the release configuration? (Assuming VS2005) If so, what is it? Thanks! Mark

Yes - debug mode will have debugging symbols which means that when you run it through a debugger you will be able to step into the code.

In release mode lot of information which the debug libs will have will be stripped out and it will also have certain optimization etc applied.
