How to know if a C++ DLL/EXE is a Debug or a Release version ?

zmau asked
Last Modified: 2021-01-12
I have a guess that the reason of performance issues my application, are related to a third party DLL, being "compiled in Debug".
The system runs on Windows.
I wonder how can I verify this issue.
I do not need a 100% reliability, 70% are enough.

Which tools might be helpful ?
