How to Compile and Run FindGeneric

CCI Metadata

The complete FindGeneric sample, including a Visual Studio 2008 project file, is in the CCI Metadata source tree under the Samples folder.
To compile and run FindGeneric:
  1. If you have not done so already, download the CCI Metadata source tree. For details on how to download the CCI Metadata sources, see Getting Started.
  2. In the source tree’s root folder, double-click the tree’s Visual Studio 2008 solution file, Metadata.sln. This solution encompasses the entire source tree, including the samples.
  3. If you have not done so already, build the entire source tree. This builds the CCI Metadata DLLS that the sample requires, along with the PeToPe application, PeToPe.exe.
  4. To view the complete FindGeneric source code, go to Solution Explorer and expand the Samples folder, which contains all the CCI Metadata samples.
  5. To run FindGeneric, open a command window, navigate to the FindGeneric project’s bin\Debug folder, and run PeToPe.exe against one or more .NET DLL or EXE files. The following example runs FindGeneric against itself.
...\Debug> FindGeneric.exe FindGeneric.exe

FindGeneric prints the signature for each generic method in a generic type in the command window.

Note: The native FindGeneric sample does not contain any generic types or methods. To make the example print signatures, add a test class to FindGeneric, as described in Add a Test Class. You can also run FindGeneric on any suitable DLL or EXE file.
