Using CCI instead of Debugging tools for windows

I want to minimize use of Debugging tools for Windows for indexing and storing pdb files.

I'd like to know if it is possible to insert alternate stream into PDB file using CCI? In my case the stream would be version control information (stream name - “srcsrv”).

Other thing is having only pdb files it is not clear how to extract a list of source files using CCI.


Thank you.

Hi aleksaspielikis,

did you make any progress in that attempt ?

I'm currently facing a similar challenge, and it seems to me CCI doesn't support the SRCSRV PDB section.

It's too bad, seeing how easy it would be to implement it (the routines are already there to decode a specific indexed section, so is the index table...).


It'd also be great to get this "secondary" source document available in CCI metadata while looking up for source code (which currently only works if you built the assembly yourself).

Thanks to all the people involved anyway, even if not (yet) perfect, it's still much better than DIA :)

Sadly - no. No progress with this issue.
