Running BoundsChecker with release builds



Do we need to run BoundsChecker on a Debug build of our application? Can I run it on a Release build?


It's not required that you run BoundsChecker on a debug build, but it is strongly recommended. If BoundsChecker can't find debug information, no FinalCheck and certain ActiveCheck errors will not be reported. Also, when viewing the BoundsChecker results, you will not see symbol names reported (only memory addresses) or source code.

Note: If BoundsChecker can't find debug info or source code, you'll want to make sure the setting "Report errors even if no source code is available" is checked (BoundsChecker | Settings | Error Detection tab | Detailed Error Reporting category).
