PDB obsolete format, delete and rebuild RRS feed

  • Question

  • My PC just crashed halfway through building a project, and when I tried building it again it complained about a bunch of PDB files being broken and asked me to delete them.

    Here's a question. Why can't it delete them itself, instead of having me browse through the file structure and delete them manually one by one?

  • Maybe you would prefer a different solution to the problem, such as restoring from backup.

    Or maybe it is a transient problem caused by another task working with the files at the same time and the other task would not appreciate having the rug pulled out from under it.

    It would be the height of arrogance (and frequently intolerable) for the compiler designer to decide how it should fix problems for you.
