Overlay of Ice 2.4.1 source code kills VS addin

rpetersrpeters Member Rich PetersOrganization: braxton technologyProject: cross platfrom JNI replacement ✭✭
Hi,

In an attempt to see source while debugging I downloaded and unzipped the source code. Since there was no bin folder, it seemed pretty benign to unzip over the install directory.

I did that, and now Slice fails... The message is:
Error	1	C:\Program Files (x86)\ZeroC\Ice-3.4.1\cpp\bin\slice2cpp.exe not found. Review 'Ice Home' setting.	c:\Dev\CORE4\Common\Interface\AlsServiceControl.ice	0

my ice configuration for that project has not changed.
Why is it looking in the cpp folder???

thanks
Rich

    The plugin determines whether Ice Home is set to an installation directory or a source tree by detecting the presence of certain directories. By unpacking a source distribution over the top of an Ice installation it now thinks the installation is a source tree, which has the slice compiler located in a different location than an install, namely cpp/bin.

    So what is the recommended fix for this?
    the readme didnt say much about unzipping the source...
    I just want if for debugging, not to build.


    renaming the cpp directory to source seems to make it work again

    Hi,

    You can just unpack the Ice 3.4.1 source distribution in an other directory (in your home directory for example).

    Cheers,
    Benoit.
