BoundsChecker causing cl.exe to crash

Hello,

I am using Compuware BoundsChecker 8.2.1 version (I had same problems even with earlier versions) on VS 2005 and I get problems in building project with Instrumentation on. It shows that the Microsoft (R) C/C++ Optimizing Compiler has encountered a problem and needs to close.

In fact same crash occur in VC 6.0 too.
In VS 2005 I have installed SP1, but that did not helped. I have Incredibuild installed too, but I do not use it to build with instrumentation.

Did anyone had the same problem before and was luck to solve it?
Thanks

Try these settings:
Project->Properties->Config Properties->c++->Optimization-> Disable
Project->Properties->Config Properties->c++->Global Optimizations-> No

Compuware replied:

"Having Incredibuild installed at the same time as DevPartner is a known
issue and will cause instrumentation problems along with possible crashing.
Also, any anti virus software installed on a development machine while using
DevPartner studio is a known issue and may cause problems.

It is recommend that you you remove Incredibuild and disable any
anti-virus software when profiling with DevPartner Studio as this constitutes an
unsupported environment."

But, figuratively speaking, it is not a good solution!!!
Its interesting, what causing such problems...

BoundsChecker is instrumenting your code during a build, meaning it is injecting additional code into the final binary that is then used to facilitate its ability to check for out of bounds situations. I guess the problem is that Incredibuild is also attempting to modify the code (it's an aggressive optimizer, right?) and the two are conflicting. Are you able to disable Incredibuild on an ad-hoc basis? If so maybe you can just disable it when you need to do BoundsChecker intrumented builds.

As for the AV problem, I can only guess that the concern is that the AV Engine may scan a binary with instrumentation and false positive on it -- I've never had problems with AV Engines before when building instrumented code.

It is strange, because there are two ways: to use VC++ Build or with Incredibuild. I use the first one for Instrumentation and Incredibuild should not influence this method of build.

I look for a way to disable Incredibuild quickly. Simple "Service Stop" do not works. I wonder how it could be done...

Not sure incredibuild injects any code though. I am using it diffrent profilers

>> Not sure incredibuild injects any code though
Yes, I've just looked at the website and it seems to be a build facilitator rather than an optimizer. It allows for, amongst other things, distributed builds. I suppose, if this is what's being done I can see how this could be a problem... if parts of the build are done with instrumentation and parts aren't.

I can only suggest disabling it if you don't want to remove it -- if that's possible. I don't know this product so I cannot advise further.

Problem was solved from IncrediBuild side.

Suggested actions:
1. Please set interoperability mode to Disabled and try again running the instrumented BoundsChecker build.
If the build finishes successfully, it means that BoundsChecker cannot run when IncrediBuild Interoperability mode is enabled.
2. Please remember to enable the Interoperability mode once running VS builds without BoundsChecker.

And it worked.
Thank you for support
