/GX (Enable Exception Handling)

/GX

This option enables synchronous exception handling with the assumption that extern C functions never throw an exception. It is equivalent to /EHsc.

/GX is in effect, by default, when you compile from within the development environment. By default, /GX- is enabled when using command-line tools.

For more information, see C++ Exception Handling.
