I am linking in libpxc_d.lib and libpxcutils_d.lib into the debug version of my code and all's well - it works fine. But then I build a Release version and it it fails on the free for the STL variables. I linked the libpxcutils.lib into my Debug version and it fails the same way. I insert _ITERATOR_DEBUG_LEVEL=2 into the compiler options and suddenly the Debug version works again.
I cannot build the Release version with _ITERATOR_DEBUG_LEVEL=2 because the STL libs won't allow it (you get an error on the link that informs you that _ITERATOR_DEBUG_LEVEL>1 is not allowed with release.) I am not able to build a Release mode version of my code but, fortunately, no release version is currently due but I should fix this as soon as possible.
The problem appears to be that some portion of the SDK was built with the _ITERATOR_DEBUG_LEVEL=2 defined (an STL debug). Could you check? Any other suggestions? I am using the Gold release of the SDK that just came out but this occurred on the previous version as well. All this is with VS 2010 and Windows 7.
