Debug vs. Release
« on: November 24, 2008, 16:52:42 »
Dunno what's wrong here, but it seems like I can only create debug builds (using VS2003)... when choosing "release", the compiler always hangs at "generating code...". i wanted to try the release option as opening a drive in the Instrument Library browser crashes modplug all the time...

Are you sure it hangs? Release build takes considerably more time than debug build, and it can be "generating code" for rather long time -- maybe something like tens of seconds to a few minutes.

Clean and rebuild is the only (tentative) suggestion I can come up with.

I've got VS 2008 Professional now (MSDNAA ftw). First thing I see is that it's fucking slow on my machine. ;) Also, I've tried the release build option again, let it run in the background for some time, and it works now.
