Hi all,

I need to run .cmd file before the project is getting build.Since,that .cmd file generates one header file which is required for successful build of this project.How to give the command line syntax in prebuild event?

Solution 1

If you build from the command line (?), the most obvious way is to run both your command file and your build from a new command file, the one after the other.

Solution 2

Go to Build Events > Pre Build Events and enter the command line you want. Be sure to give the full path of the cmd file, and enclose it in quotes if the path has spaces. You can use dos piping like this:
c:\project\mycmd.cmd > new.h
There are some macros that might be useful. Click on the Macros button to see list.
