I'm building an engine app in 10.0 using studio 2010.
the app builds fine in debug and my installer works fine.
but if i build in release mode the app still installs but doesn't run.
when i click the exe it dies in windows7 with a message that doesn't provide much help.
is this where arcEngine questions are supposed to go?
