Hi I’m currently running a beta, and some users experience problems which I just can’t reproduce - so I’m thinking about sending them debug builds and letting them run it in a debugger or in a terminal…
- Would it help to let them debug the Release build?
Usually you get errors like “Illegal instruction at 0x947F” etc. . Would there be any way for me to connect this adress to a piece of code (over debug build or release build with debug symbols)?
- Do they need to have the actual code for Debug builds to work?
I.e. will the .pdb files themselves say something like “foo.cpp, line 14” or do they need to have the codebase underneath?
- Will they even be able to start a Debug build
I remember sending someone a Debug build by accident, they couldn’t open it because they were lacking some xyzD.dll libraries.
- Any other way to approach this?
Any help much appreciated!
