Warning: Analysis of Release Build


A message appears when you start the Dependencies tool and the current build options selected for the project is a Release build.


To produce the best results, your build settings for the Dependencies tool should specify debug information and no optimization. If possible, use a minimal data set for the Dependencies tool.

When a tool is waiting for your input (click either Continue or Cancel), the result name has a [!] prefix. If you do not respond within several minutes, the tool implicitly chooses the Cancel button.


For the Dependencies tool, you should use a Debug build of your program, not a Release build.

Possible Solution

  • Before you respond to the message, change to use Debug build settings and build the target executable. When it completes, click Continue to run the analysis.

  • Click Continue and ignore this message. Later, run this tool again with a target built from Debug build settings.

  • Click Cancel. Change to use Debug build settings and build the target executable. Then run the Dependencies tool.
