/GX (Enable Exception Handling)
The latest version of this topic can be found at -GX (Enable Exception Handling).
Deprecated. Enables synchronous exception handling using the assumption that functions declared by using
extern "C" never throw an exception.
By default, /EHsc, the equivalent of /GX, is in effect when you compile by using the Visual Studio development environment. When using the command line tools, no exception handling is specified. This is the equivalent of /GX-.
For more information, see C++ Exception Handling.
