Compiler Error CS2036

Visual Studio 2008

The /pdb option requires that the /debug option also be used.

Program database files are only generated for debug builds. The /pdb option is therefore meaningless in a retail build.

To correct this error

  • Add the /debug compiler option.

  • Remove the /pdb compiler option.

The following example generates CS2036 when it is compiled with the /pdb option but not the /debug option:

// cs2036.cs
// Compile with: /pdb
// CS2036
class Test
    public static int Main()
        return 1;
