/ASSEMBLYDEBUG (Add DebuggableAttribute)

/ASSEMBLYDEBUG[:DISABLE]

/ASSEMBLYDEBUG emits the DebuggableAttribute attribute with debug information tracking and disables JIT optimizations. This is the same as specifying the following attribute in source:

[assembly:Debuggable(true, true)];   // same as /ASSEMBLYDEBUG

/ASSEMBLYDEBUG:DISABLE emits the DebuggableAttribute attribute but disables the tracking of debug information and enables JIT optimizations. This is the same as specifying the following attribute in source:

[assembly:Debuggable(false, false)];   // same as /ASSEMBLYDEBUG:DISABLE

The default is to not emit the DebuggableAttribute attribute.

DebuggableAttribute can also be added to an assembly directly in source code. For example,

[assembly:Debuggable(true, true)];   // same as /ASSEMBLYDEBUG

In Visual C++ .NET 2003 and later, it is necessary to explicitly specify that a managed image be debuggable. Using /Zi alone is not sufficient.

Other linker options that affect assembly generation are:
