Debug error: vc100.pdb is missing debugging information

Debug error: vc100.pdb is missing debugging information

Hi All,

I have a program that can be built successfully in release mode, but when it is built in debug mode, a lot of warning information will be generated, as follows:

warning LNK4204: 'D:\src\project\visualstudio\x64\Debug\vc100.pdb' is missing debugging information for referencing module; linking object as if no debug info.

My system is WIN7 X64 Pro. Compiler: Intel Parallel Studio XE2013 latest version (I just updated it).

How can I get resolved of this problem.

Thanks and regards,

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

This warning just means that the debug information for that particular file was not found. Are you linking any libraries or previously built projects without debug info or have you changed any of the default build folders? You will still be able to debug.


When you have issues with missing pdb files on debug, try using dev libraries (copy settings from Release, link with dev libs and it should work fine). Also new version is out, supports VS2012.
