Drag and Drop problems in MFC

I am trying to enable drag and drop in my MFC application. I am dragging elements from a tree control to a list control and I am processing the following messages:
TVN_BEGINDRAG
WM_MOUSEMOVE
LBUTTONUP

Everything works fine in debug mode but the release executable crashes as soon as I drag an item. Has anyone come across this issue before?

Sounds like an error in code - have you iniitialised all variables? (The debug mode build does it automatically, release mode does NOT).

Thanks for your reply. It turned out to be an issue with message reflection which was causing the release version to crash.

I was using the following to detect dragging:
ON_NOTIFY_REFLECT(TVN_BEGINDRAG, OnTvnBegindrag)

Changing this to following fixed the issue:
ON_NOTIFY_REFLECT_EX(TVN_BEGINDRAG, OnTvnBegindrag)
