Access to missing headers, so that cvdump.exe can be compiled RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to compile cvdump.exe (from here: https://github.com/Microsoft/microsoft-pdb) but there are at least the files listed below that are missing.  I am wondering if these are not published on github due to some licensing/legal issues that might not apply when a customer has a business relationship with Microsoft.  Would it be possible for us to get access to the files required to build cvdump.exe?

    • verstamp.h 
    • version.h 
    • vcver.h
    • cvexefmt.h
    • _winnt2.h
    •  ecoff.h
    •  safestk.h
    •  map_t.h

    Thanks!

  • Hi Rennie,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Refer to your description, your issue is more relates to the development issue of C++. Since our forum is to discuss Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor, I will help you move it to this forum: Visual Studio Languages  >  Visual C++  for dedicated information, you will get a more professional support from there, thank you for your understanding.

    Best regards,

    Sara

  • Hi Rennie Allen,

    thanks for posting here.

    According to the description of microsoft-pdb, this code WILL NOT currently build. There is a cvdump.exe till the repo is completed. pdb.h is in the langapi folder. There seems already has one posted on April 2012 in its issues forum.

    For this case, I suggest you connect to Microsoft and post an issue on it.

    Hope this could be help of you.

    Best Regards,
    Sera Yu

  • Sera,

    Thanks for moving my post to the correct forum, and for the reply.

    Do you suggest that I file this as a bug under connect?

    I couldn't see a connect forum that was "source code requests" or something similar.

    Best Regards,

  • Sara,

    I could not find where you moved this question to.  In the Visual Studio Languages > Visual C++ forum, I searched for this topic and only found this page, i.e., the Windows Desktop Development forum.

    So that leaves the original issue unanswered and nowhere else I could find the issue being raised.

    Also, the issue is actually with the content of the project github.com/Microsoft/microsoft-pdb.  It should be brought to the attention of whomever is maintaining that project.  It really is not an issue with C++.

    The github page does have an issue posted about all the missing files, but there has been no response to it.
