visual c++ question

i'm working on a networking program and I compiled my program with go (F5) show i can check my breakpoints and my program will display these values in my program correctly, but if i try anything else like batch build - release or execute (ctrl+F5) and I will get values way off from the correct values.

How can I get the debug mode (go - F5) values (correct values) into the release batch?

what makes go (F5) different from the other compiling options that it will display different values from the others?

You can debug the program if it contains debug information. By default, only Debug version contains debug information. Changing of project settings allows to add debug information also to Release configuration:

With these changes you can use Go command also in Release mode. Some problems still remain when you are debugging the Release version because of compiler optimizations.

Other way to see values of variables in Release mode is using of OutputDebugString instead of TRACE.
