API is failing in release mode but working in debug mode. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am using a third party library in my code.

    When i run it in debug mode(with visual studio debugger) it works fine but when i run by clicking the exe(which uses third party API) it fails always.

    I searched on web and found there is some problem with working directory. I could not understand it.

    When i contact the third party they said it is working fine in their environment.

    I am a kind of stuck here.

    Can somebody give some idea about the root cause.

  • If you needed help with visual studio debugging you could also over here.


    For debugging the library I'd ask the third party for help.
