    Setting up a MSVC.NET 2002 project for Release mode

    Okay...I did this once back a long time ago with MSVC 6.0, but I havent done it yet with .NET.

    I have attempted to use my knowledge of how things were done back in 6.0 and create a Release mode copy of my project instead of a Debug mode one, yet I have utterly failed.

    There are still 3 dependencies I need to get rid of, and cant figure out how:

    msvci70.dll msvcr70.dll msvcp70.dll

    Anyone got a clue how to do it? I have searched all throughout the Project Settings and cannot figure out how. I have it on NDEBUG (not _DEBUG), and I have it on Multithreaded DLL (not Multithreaded Debug DLL). Also as far as I can see all the .lib dependencies check out...unless I am stupid and don't know that one is actually a debug lib and shouldnt be there or should be changed....

    Can't you just change the active mode to Release? Or are there special settings with those DLLs that you need specifically set?

    Yes, there should already be two default configurations - Debug and Release. You should be able to select the Release configuration, and then modify it to your liking (i.e. change the run time library to multi-threaded, etc.) You should have not needed to create this entirely yourself, nor should you be changing the default configuration (Debug) into a Release-style configuration, as you will not be able to switch back and forth quickly between the two.
