Using UNC Shares

The Cv2http.cmd,, and Walk (Walk.cmd) scripts are used to provide source files from a simple UNC share. The files Cv2http.cmd and extract the SrcSrv stream, modify it using a Perl script, and put the altered stream back in the .pdb file. The syntax is as follows:

cv2http.cmd PDB Alias SourceRoot

where PDB specifies the name of the .pdbfile to modify, Alias specifies the logical name to apply to your Web site, and SourceRoot specifies the root of the UNC share to which you extracted the source files. Note that the Alias parameter is stored in the PDB as a varaible name that can be overridden on the debugger client in Scrsrv.ini, should you ever move the location of the Web site.

This script requires that all the standard SrcSrv tools be available in the path because it calls both SrcTool and PDBStr. Remember that is a Perl script and can be modified to meet your needs.

The third file, the Walk (walk.cmd) script, modifies an entire set of .pdb files. For example:

walk.cmd *.pdb cv2http.cmd SourceRoot \\server\share

The preceding command calls Cv2http.cmd on every .pdb file in a tree, using SourceRoot for the alias and \\server\share for the UNC share. For more details on Walk, see Extracting Source Files.

After this command is executed on a tree of .pdb files, they are ready for installation into the Web site or whatever location in which you want to put them. Remember that you can use SrcTool and PDBStr to examine the changes to the .pdb files.
