I am trying to find out why a plugin of mine just blows Pluginval out of existence. I first used a downloaded version.
Then I pulled the latest Pluginval code, ran the two CMake commands, from the instructions on GitHub.
I get the same issue when I run pluginval.exe locally after building, from the pluginval_artefacts folder, where it is apparently saved.
So of course I now want to run Pluginval in the debugger.
If I open the solution file in Visual Studio 2022 (latest v17.3.3) and issue the Start Debugging command, I get an Alertbox message:
Unable to start program <my path to pluginval>\Builds\x64\Debug\ALL_BUILD Access is denied
I tried removing the Build folders, repeat the steps, same result.
I am not yet a CMake user, but if the two commands work fine, can I assume this is not related to CMake?
The solution and projects structure is different from what I am used to, so I rather await a reply, than try to understand it now (with ALL_BUILD, INSTALL, ZERO_CHECK, etc).
How can I start/debug (F5) Pluginval in the VS IDE?
[EDIT] I just discovered I can drag the .exe file into Visual Studio and then can Start a debugging session. Nice! But I guess this a nice accidental discovery and not the official way?
