You can run a program created in Visual Studio outside of the Visual Studio environment. Just-In-Time debugging is a technique for debugging a program that is started outside of Visual Studio. If you have enabled Just-In-Time debugging, the program will bring up a dialog box when a crash occurs. This dialog box will ask if you want to debug the program and which debugger you want to use.
Note For applications written with Managed Extensions for C++, if you are debugging a nonoptimized release build, Just-in-Time debugging might break at a different location from where exception was actually thrown. To correct this, add the following code to your application's AssemblyInfo.cpp file:
If you compile with /Zi and without /Og, the compiler sets this attribute for you.
