Description
The product build targets in the Visual Studio projects do not generate full symbol information. This makes it hard to debug crashes in product builds.

We need to add the /DEBUG option to the link command. This will increase the size of the .pdb files but it should not affect the .dll binaries.

EVALUATION

Make sure that <GenerateDebugInformation>true<GenerateDebugInformation> is available in the project files.
