/ASSEMBLYDEBUG (Add DebuggableAttribute)
/ASSEMBLYDEBUG emits the Debuggable attribute with debug information tracking and disables JIT optimizations. This is the same as specifying the following attribute in source:
/ASSEMBLYDEBUG:DISABLE emits the Debuggable attribute, but disables the tracking of debug information and enables JIT optimizations and is the same as specifying the following attribute is source:
[assembly:Debuggable(false, false)]; // same as /ASSEMBLYDEBUG:DISABLE
The default is to not emit the DebuggableAttribute.
DebuggableAttribute can also be added to an assembly directly in source code. For example,
Starting in Visual C++ .NET 2003 , it is necessary to explicitly specify that a managed image be debuggable; using /Zi alone is not sufficient.
