Dependency analysis between built items RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there a way to trace dependencies between built targets at build time and to understand why a particular target is built or not ?
    I tried to set build log ouput to "Diagnostic" but I didn't see any differences in my build ouput window or in my build log html file (C++ DLL device project). The logs are the same...
    I saw that in this thread a special option should have been added in the RTM but I didn't see anything in the documentation.
    If someone has some information, I would be grateful.
    Thanks.

  • Well, I realize I mistaked msbuild.exe with vcbuild.exe.
    I will search on VC forums.
    Thank you for your answer.

  • Hi Kaligero,

    It sounds like you're building a .vcproj file, is that right? MSBuild doesn't yet build .vcproj files, that's still handled by a tool called vcbuild.exe (or inside Visual Studio, by the VC project system). I'd ask your question of the experts on the VC forum. Sorry we can't help over here.
