Building DbgEng Extensions

All debugger extensions should be compiled and built by using Visual Studio. The Build utility is no longer used with debugger extensions.

For documentation on the Building projects in Visual Studio refer to Building C++ Projects in Visual Studio.

To build an extension, use the following procedure:

To build a debugger extension

  1. Open the dbgsdk.sln sample project in Visual Studio.

  2. Check the include and lib file project settings. If %debuggers% represents the root of your Debugging Tools for Windows installation, they should be set as follows:

    Include Path 
    %debuggers%\sdk\inc
    Library Path
    %debuggers%\sdk\lib
    

    If you have moved these headers and libraries to a different location, specify that location instead.

  3. Select Build and then Build Solution from the menu in Visual Studio.
