/Z7, /Zi, /ZI (Debug Information Format) | Microsoft Learn
Web/ZI. The /ZI option is similar to /Zi, but it produces a PDB file in a format that supports the Edit and Continue feature. To use Edit and Continue debugging features, you must use this option. The Edit and Continue feature is useful for developer productivity, but can cause issues in code size, performance, and compiler conformance.
