    When you say "purify some code", are you talking about the use of Rational Purify, or a tool like Purify, or something else? Exactly which version of Visual Studio 2008 are you using?

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Purify does not "link" your code. You do not need to build your code in any special way whatsoever (though having debug symbols makes the results a lot more useful). Just run Purify and point it at your program.
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
