C++ 7.1 Dll/Exes are much larger than MS VC++?


I just got the Intel C++ 7.1 and have been using MS VC++ for about 8 years. One thing I noticed is that the executable generated and specifically DLL are about 50% larger than the same MSVC one. I thought maybe there was debugging code in it or something, but I had the exact same settings with optimization for size and no debug or browse info and it was 50% larger across the board.

Is this true or did I miss something ?

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

It could be. I would recommend submitting an issue to Premier Support (https://premier.intel.com) if you are at all concerned. You should have an account from when you registered your compiler.
