Minimal Build Environment ?

Jun 25, 2015 at 1:26 AM
I'm interested in building the 0.3 branch from scratch.

Will the Community/Express editions of Visual Studio work for this ? Is there a preferred version to work with (I see solutions for a few different versions in the tree).

Thanks for all your work !

Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition is deal ( Express is not recommended : some ATL stuff is used )

The only difficult to build project is setting workspace. Pykd is depended on kdlibcpp. You should setup a workspace like:
$/pykd/branches/0.3.x/ project_dir/pykd
$/kdlibcpp/branches/dev project_dir/pykd/kdlib

Also I recommend you to setup pytools to debug python code

Thanks !

For 0.2: If I hit TAB after 1 or more characters entered while in !pycmd mode. Windbg goes into the BUSY loop forever.

I am used to ipython so my fingers sometimes just press tab for completion even though its not available in the standard console.

This is not really an issue but if you know something that helps avoid this busy loop let me know.
