VS 2015 + Android RRS feed

  • Question

  • Currently i am in the process of porting an Android project to VS 2015, and all has been going great thus far.  I am able to debug the native code, and fast and smooth.

    However, i have moved into a more advanced library now.  This library contains an *.S file that when run using "ndk-build" from the Android NDK, it compiles and the library is usable. I can not figure out how to compile this file within VS 2015 to provide an object file to the library.  I have tried doing a custom build tool, setting the command line to gcc and g++ and the proper arguments, but to no avail.  

    Is this possible within the VS framework?  

    Thanks for any help and assistance.

    Note: Setting Item Type to C/C++ compiler for x86 allows the file to build, but not for ARM.

  • Hi Stephen C. Keefer,

    Thank you for visiting the MSDN forum. This forum is to discuss the VS IDE usage:

    Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor.

    Based on your description, I'm afraid that it is not correct forum for this issue. I am moving your question to the moderator forum ("Where is the forum for..?"). The owner of the forum will direct you to a right forum. Thanks for your understanding.

    In addition, it would be better if you could share more information in your new reply, for example, where did you get the *.S file? Is it the third party library or others?

  • It's not using any third party plugin.  VS 2015 enables native development of Android applications.  It is a stock application, using a library that has an *.S file in it.  In debug mode, setting the content type to C++/C Compiler works, but in release mode, it does not.

  • If it is C++ I'd try them over here.
