VS 2005 debug vs release built

i'm using VS 2005 / C# / WinXP pro SP2 / .NET Framework 2.0

I'm dealing with a problem I just can't figure out. I have a MDI application
with two different types on Child windows. As means of data transfer between
the Child windows I implemented a Drag And Drop like functionality. Part of
that is that the cursor changes to different icons depending of what type of
Child window it is hovering over. As long as I start the debug or release
version of my application from within VS 2005 (F5 key) everything works
perfectly as it should. Even starting the release version from the Projects
directory via double click works fine. As soon as I move the application into
a different directory or on a different computer (including all the files
from the VS release directory) the mouse pretty much does what it wants.
Sometime the cursor changes as it should. Sometimes I changes only on a few
of the open windows and sometime sI does not change at all or does not change
back to the default cursor. Is it a knows issue that there are significant
differences between running an application from inside side of VS 2005
environment and by itself besides the debug functionality? But that should
not have such an effect!!!

obvious thing that comes to mind is its not picking up the icon files.
maybe theyr not in the release directory.
but usualy they get compiled into the application.

Hi, Did this change in Visual Studio 2005? Visual Studio 2003 didn't create a debug symbol file once the solution and project were changed to be built for release. I did notice the same difficult problem in 2005 that was in 2003 and that is getting the build for Release properties to stick on the solution and project. In my project I have verified that both the solution and project are set to

Hello, In VS2003, I used to have two solutions - a debug and release solution. Each solution had a webservice project and several other class library projects. The webservice project referenced all the other class library projects (i.e. so that it used the dll created when those other projects were built). The debug solution was configured so that all the projects in it had debug

I am having trouble getting debug and release builds to work properly with project references using C++ .NET and Visual Studio 2003. I created a test solution, with a basic Windows form C++ project. I then add a class library, and add a reference to this project in the first project. When I do a release build, I see the following in the output from the DLL compile: /OUT:"C:\Documents and Settings\Andrew\My Documents\Visual Studio

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
