    VC++ release exe exits immediately after execution

    Hi,
    i have written a simple daemon program in Visual Studio 2003 C++ -a loop basically. When i execute it as a Debug executable, it work OK. However, as a Release executable, it exits immediately after i start it; no errors or any other clue...

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    1. try to run it from comman prompt
    2. check for use of not initialized variables
    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    Have tried from command line too. There are also no uninitialized vars...

    so post your code

    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    Do you start it with "Start" (F5) or "Start Without Debugging" (Ctrl+F5)? Cause VC++ won't keep the window open if you do the former.

    i am posting the source... However, i suspect that the problem has to do with the Release configuration... I use MFC by the way. I am really newbie on this, so if anyone can make any assumptions or suspects anything on the configuration that could have caused this problem...

    Thanks
