I am using WDP for several ASP.NET projects. I wanted to generate PDB files when building in Release mode, so I can debug easily on production site. I was surprised to find out that the option Generate Debug Info does not do exactly what it says. Instead of generating PDB files as I expected, it sets <compilation debug="enable">.
This is very confusing for me, because instead of getting debugging symbols, I end up with not optimized and slow web site.
Is there a way to turn on generation of PDB files in release mode? It is possible to do it with aspnet_compiler -d option.
