AutoDisableStop: If enabled, causes Application Verifier to report a given problem only once. LoggingWithLocksHeld: If enabled, causes Application Verifier to log the DLL load and unload events. Note that this might cause problems in the application since logging requires I/O that is performed during the execution of the DllMain code path. To get a brief description of each test setting, you can hover over the test setting to open up a balloon tip.
