BoundsChecker and Qt Plugin issues in VC++ on Windows
I have the MicroFocus BoundsChecker for VC++ installed, and it crashes every time I try to do Performance Analysis on a -QT- Qt Plugin library we have built.
A search of the internet (see snippet below) suggests that there are configuration settings and/or CFLAGS settings I can do, but I have had no luck playing with them.
Does anybody else have any suggestions on how I configure -QT- Qt and/or VC++ and/or BoundsChecker to play nice together for plugins??? The MicroFocus support has been AWFUL!!!
// This is a snippet from http://qt.gitorious.org/qt/qt/blobs/4.7/mkspecs/features/qt.prf showing a possible clue...
// This option is added for plugins when Qt is configured for Boundschecker,
// since we want Boundschecker to not instrument the qt_plugin_query_verification_data
// function, as we call that function without the plugin's dependent DLLs, thus
// Boundscheckers instrumentation will fail. The function only returns a const char *,
// so no instrumentation is really needed on that function anyways.
QMAKE_CFLAGS += /nmignore::qt_plugin_query_verification_data
QMAKE_CXXFLAGS += /nmignore::qt_plugin_query_verification_data
Are you using qmake?
In that case you can just try to use
as mentioned in the file you linked. If you don't just pass "/nmignore:*:qt_plugin_query_verification_data" to the compiler.
No, I'm not using QMake. I am compiling/linking directly through the QT-for-VC++ Add-in, and I see no where in the options to alter the config settings.
Surely I don't have to re-install the QT Add-in with new configuration settings!
