/GR (Enable Run-Time Type Information)
Adds code to check object types at run time.
When /GR is on, the compiler defines the
_CPPRTTI preprocessor macro. By default, /GR is on. /GR- disables run-time type information.
Use /GR if the compiler cannot statically resolve an object type in your code. You usually need the /GR option when your code uses dynamic_cast Operator or typeid. However, /GR increases the size of the .rdata sections of your image. If your code does not use dynamic_cast or typeid, /GR- may produce a smaller image.
For more information about run-time type checking, see Run-Time Type Information in the C++ Language Reference.
