IF problem in C++

Posted on 2013-07-01

I've a problem with this IF sentence in Visual Studio 2010 C++:
      if (dataAligV!=0)

If I run the program in Debug Mode it works fine and does'nt execute the "objPT=" sentence but in release mode (with the same input data)  it doesn't work.

In release mode, if I add some code to do a txt trace, it also works fine. I know it could be a hard issue to solve, but I would appreciate if anyone can help me.

tks in advance,

If the results vary like that, probable cause is an uninitialized variable...

Try setting an initial value for "dataAligV" when you declare it...

So you are saying if you put something here
 if (dataAligV!=0)
   // Dump dataAligV here

It works the way you want to?

Yes, JulianH. Also if no code is inserted but in DEBUG MODE works fine. The problem arises when I build the code in RELEASE MODE. It's hard to solve...

For more info, it is a WIN32 project creating "int __stdcall fnCreateCardEx" and exporting to be used by an VB6 ActiveX. This function do some graphic printing over plastic cards using WINGDI

n2fc, I've checked that a hundred times (but I'will do this again). All variables are initialized.
