cerbero - windows - generating .pdb files?

Thanks for the explaination Sebasian,

Interesting, when I use the installed runtime (form the .msi), it finds the plugin I am creating no problem from MSVC (Toolset v100, Compiled as C /TC), runs, debugs fine. When I use the debug version of GStreamer built in cerbero, just replacing the gstreamer-1.0-x86-64 contents, gst-inspect-1.0 no longer finds the plugin, everything else seems to work fine. Plugin isn't blacklisted, GST_PLUGIN_PATH is unchanged and pointing directly to the folder with the plugin.

You currently don't unfortunately. We build with MINGW, and that can't
build pdb compatible debug symbols. AFAIK the pdb format is also not
documented anywhere and nobody reverse engineered it yet.

The binaries include debug symbols compatible with gdb though.

To get pdb debug symbols you would have to build with MSVC, which is
currently not supported by cerbero.
