Debug Mode Settings on Windows Application

Post by NAXOM »

Hi,
why madExcept modify the debug options in IDE, if i use it in 32-, or 64-bit windows compilations?

Does madexcept not work without the configuration "adjust compiler & linker options"?

I want to distribute my apps without debugging compilations...

madExcept only modifies the compiler debug options, which makes the dcu files bigger, but has no effect on the exe file. In the linker options the only debug option madExcept changes is the creation of a detailed map file, which is needed for madExcept to learn the function names and line numbers. But again, it has no effect on the exe file. madExcept does store the function names and line numbers into the resource section of the exe file, though.

Thanks for the info.

Does the resource leak feature also work different in 32/64 bit mode?

With the same answer perhaps?

Leak reporting has the same needs as exception handling.
