I am using Debug mode. can you please explain what do you mean in the words "Are you including debug information in your app"? what is debug information?
Debug information is an optional linker option in compiler.
If you maye it "on" then the compiler will generate a pdb file for you when you build which contains the symbols for your application and can be used by the Visual Studio debugger and external debuggers to find where something went wrong easily.
