Thank you for responding barnyman.

This is a release build (both of them). Since reporting the problem I have some additional information. I ran both executables (the big and the small one) on the same computer and used the ProcessMonitor tool to determine and compare the dll's that each was loading. The results show the larger exe is loading 4 additional dll's. They are:

dwmapi.dll
msimg32.dll
winmm.dll
gdiplus.dll

I am not using any code the needs these dll's.
In my projects settings: Linker->Input->Ignore Specific Libray settings, I blocked all of the lib files that depend on these dll's and can't compile the project. This tells me there is some new dependency that has formed.

In searching the Internet I learned that programmers that have moved to VS2010 are having the same problem. It seems there are some MFC files that have some built in dependencies to the MFC feature pack even though their project is not using them. I suspect that is what is going on with my project even though I am still using VS2008. The most latest Windows update made that happen. (I have used the MFC feature pack in some other projects but don't do that anymore. I can do it all without it.)

This experience gives new meaning to the concept of VC_EXTRALEAN and dare I say WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN from back in the day. More to come.

Once again thanks for your time barneyman.
