VS2008 Profile Guided Optimization and Qt Plugins
reztirps last edited by
I'm developing an application using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 and Qt 4.7.0 that consists of the main application and several plug-ins / dlls. Since performance is very important for my case, the use Visual Studio's Profile Guided Optimization feature would be very welcome. For the main application, everything works fine - I am able to compile it using PGO and run into no problems. When I try to run a plug-in's instrumented compilation, however, for some reason QPluginLoader is unable to load the plug-in. I have already tried doing this under the main application's regular Release build, under a PGO build (the whole thing), and under an instrumented build, all to no avail. I was wondering if anyone here has already bumped into a similar problem and found a solution. Is it even possible to use PGO with QT-based dll's?
Thanks in advance for the help.
