Unable to change /FR command line option RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm building a project and have the command-line options set as follows in the Property Pages under C/C++ Command Line:

    /Od /D "WIN32" /D "_DEBUG" /D "_WINDOWS" /D "_AFXEXT" /D "_VC80_UPGRADE=0x0600" /D "_WINDLL" /D "_AFXDLL" /D "_MBCS" /Gm /EHsc /RTC1 /MDd /Yu"stdafx.h" /Fp".\Debug/Genie.pch" /Fo".\Debug/" /Fd".\Debug/" /FR".\Debug\\" /W3 /nologo /c /ZI /TP /errorReport:prompt /D "WINVER=0x0501"

    Note that the /FR".\Debug\\" is set to FR, not the deprecated Fr

    When I run the build, I get the following output, which shows that the option changes for one file.  The name of the DLL being generated is Genie.dll and the problem file is Genie.cpp.

    Any suggestions on how to get the /FR options to be consistent will be appreciated.

    ... Now the Genie.cpp file is compiled, but the command-line generated shows /Fr incorrectly

  • Maybe the /Fr option is set for Genie.cpp file individually? Right-click on the file, go to Properties and check the options.
