How Can I Debug Access Violations When Running My Program Standalone?
My program runs fine in the Visual Studio environment, but when I run it stand alone with the Windows operating system, it produces an access violation. How can I debug this problem?
Set the Just-in-time debugging option and run your program standalone until the access violation occurs. Then, in the Access Violation dialog box, you can click Cancel to start the debugger.
