This should do the trick:
#include <crtdbg.h> // Visual C++-specific
// Redirect errors and assert() failures to stderr
// instead of pop-up debug message window.
// NOTE: Comment this 2 lines for debugging with
// Visual C++ debugger to catch assertions inside.
assert(false && "test"); // no pop-up expected
