    I cannot find the prebuild step interface as described in project properties documentation. I need to run an executable before build.  I think I had an earlier version and it was available and worked.  Was the feature removed?

     

    Using VGB Embedded Edition, version 5.4.

    Hi,

    Sorry, this is by design. This feature is available starting from the Custom edition of VisualGDB. If you are using a lower edition, please consider adding a Make or MSBuild target manually.

    Alternatively, you can update your license to the Custom edition here: https://sysprogs.com/splm/mykey

    I tried adding this bit, but I don’t think it’s working.   I’ll find another workaround.  I’ll stick with the version I have for now, still partly evaluating the product.

    <PropertyGroup Label=”UserMacros” />

    <ItemDefinitionGroup>
    <PreBuildEvent>
    <Command>.\Script\TRXM_82.exe </Command>
    <Message>bLA BLA BLA </Message>
    </PreBuildEvent>
    </ItemDefinitionGroup>

    Hi,

    Please consider using the MSBuild Exec task instead. It should work regardless of the project type and other VisualGDB-related settings.
