Set_window_title() causes exception

Trying to compile the Panda Hello World tutorial. Builds and links fine, but crashes on the following line:

framework.set_window_title("My Panda3D Window");

Without it runs fine. What causes this?

Panda version:
Microsoft VS 2019

Are you compiling in Release mode? And have you removed the NDEBUG symbol from the preprocessor definitions?

Hello. I am building in Debug configuration. I haven’t figured out where does MSVS 2019 adds this directive. Indeed, it works in Release mode.

Is it possible to compile in Debug configuration?

Compiling in Debug configuration requires also recompiling Panda3D in Debug mode (via makepanda this can be achieved by lowering the --optimize option).
