SDK Workaround: Samples Fail to Compile with Debug:Itanium error


 This workaround applies to:


·         The prerelease Windows SDK for Windows Server 2008 and .Net Framework 3.5 (RC0), September, 2007


·         The prerelease Windows SDK for Windows Server 2008 and .Net Framework 3.5 (IDS04), July, 2007


·         The Windows SDK Update for Windows Vista (RTM), March, 2007


 


Some samples may fail to compile in the SDK build environment with the following error:


 


vcbuild.exe : error VCBLD0004: Project ‘C:\buildall_hxs\local\sampleexecutables\Technologies\DirectoryServices\BEREncoding\CP\BerEncoding\BerEncoding.vcproj’ does not contain a configuration called ‘Debug|Itanium’


 


This error occurs because platform configurations are listed alphabetically by default in a project or solution file created by Visual Studio.  If Debug|Itanium is a supported configuration, it will be listed first in the samples’ solution and/or project files.   


 


To workaround this issue, use a configuration switch to specify what platform you wish to build for:


 


Msbuild *.sln /p:platform=Win32


Msbuild *.sln /p:platform=X64


 


VCbuild *.vcproj /platform:Win32


VCbuild *.vcproj /platform:X64
