Link.exe requires /DEBUG to properly generate a full pdb file on release
Have linker generate proper PDB for windows build
FYI: Here is the relevant Microsoft document on the subject. Without /DEBUG, a PBD file is built for libcurl.dll but Visual Studio complains there are no symbols for it when debugging and I can see its only a few 10s of KBs in size, not a few MBs.
Note that this fixes only one of the three different build mechanisms......
So the same issue exists on the others? Even if it does, accepting a fix that corrects a problem still seems the right thing to do even if there are other places with problems around...
Are the two others the projects folder and cmake? I can look into them over the course of the week.
thanks @amarcionek I don't speak Cmake well enough to look (plus my life is a bit busy). Very much appreciated on behalf of this windows user
