Make VC6 Action Options Tab

This tab of the Make VC6 action configures additional options.


Log dependencies found in workspace: If checked, when building a multi-project workspace, each project's dependencies on other projects in the workspace will be logged.


Additional command-line options: This action invokes the MSDEV command-line program to perform the builds, and this option can be used to specify additional flags to pass to the tools.  For instance, MSDEV supports a /USEENV flag to ignore the Tools|Options|Directories settings.  Details on the MSDEV flags are covered here.  The values entered in this field are passed through directly to the command-line program.


Override default MSDEV location: If blank, the command-line MSDEV compiler is automatically located by looking for the registry entry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\msdev.exe\ and extracting out the exe filename.  For Embedded Visual C++, the registry entries HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\evc4.exe\ (and evc.exe\)are searched and used if found.  By providing a full path and filename for this field, the command-line executable specified will be used rather than looking it up.


To build VC6 projects and workspaces with Xoreax IncrediBuild (v2.0 and later), set enter the full path to BuildConsole.exe (usually C:\Program Files\Xoreax\IncrediBuild\BuildConsole.exe), and enter any IncrediBuild-specific switches in the Additional command-line options field.
