Microsoft C++ and Native (C, VB)

The example script below is configured to enable debugging of a C++ project built in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 or 2008.

You can debug native code only if there is a corresponding PDB file for the executable. You normally create the PDB file as a result of building the application.

The build should include full debug information and there should be no optimizations set.


The script must specify two things to support debugging:

  • The path to the executable
  • Microsoft Native as the debugging platform.
