Since Visual C++ 2013: D8050 error appears when executing "cl.exe". RRS feed

  • Question

  • Since Visual C++ 2013 the compiler didn't work when startet from our Antmake Build Environment. This error appears:

    "cl : Command line error D8050 : cannot execute 'D:\...": failed to get command line into debug records"

    I can't find any information regarding the "D8050" error. What did D8050 mean?

  • Its saying "cannot execute". Is the environment setup for cl.exe to execute? You should see something similar being done when executing Visual Studio command line.

  • The environment should be ok. Because, if i execute the Antmake Build Environment in "cmd.exe" started with administrator privileges. The error didn't appear.

  • Hi,

    Has the problem been solved? If yes, could you please share it with us? It will be very beneficial for other community members who have similar questions.

    I'm sorry that I can not find specified document about Command line error D8050. This error is not listed in that page about "Command-Line Errors D8000 Through D9999". However, according to your description, if you execute the Antmake Build Environment in "cmd.exe" started with administrator privileges, it will work fine. I think the error appear because it cannot execute (from the hint of the error). So after you run with administrator, it works ok.

    Meanwhile, I suggest you post this issue in connect.

    Best regards,
