Exception handling

Gday everyone.

Id like to create a file to save all exception messages, so I added code to most of catch my catches, and the good thing is it works.
Now I tried the same thing as release version but dont get any results!! File stays the way it is.

Can anyone help?

    Is it possible you are not gettinh any errors. Because a Catch doesn't execute when no exceptions are thrown.

    Nope, Ive made a little calculator to test, before I dare to implement it into the companys product.

    I can create a variety of exceptions. going through with debug no problem. This is not possible in release of course. Didnt find anything mentioned in docu about different handling of exceptions for release/debug either. One thing I found out: string of Exception is different in the two versions. In release it doesnt contain any path information. This caused my test app to crash in release.

    Thanks.

    That would be because the release version does not compile w/ the Debug symbols, so .NET has no way of telling you which line an exception has occured. You may need to change the way you log your exceptions.

    Okay, I figured there is no path and line info in release so I changed code. Works okay now, but is no as helpful as debug.

    thanks and merry X-mas
