How can I set up BoundsChecker (Error Detection) for automation and getting a file of the results pane?
This pertains to all versions of BoundsChecker since 8.0.
SETTING UP BOUNDSCHECKER FOR AUTOMATION:
* Set your settings for your executable:
An example batch file can be downloaded from the link below. Rename it to run_notepad_with_bc.bat if you want to try it on your machine. Essentially, it does the following for you.
* Setup path's:
- put bc.exe on the PATH.
- put any other needed executables on the PATH
* Generate a log file:
- In DOS, execute notepad.exe using bc.exe on the command line and have it generate a log file
- exercise notepad.exe
- exit notepad.exe
* Dump the results log:
- use ...\Program Files\Common Files\Compuware
MShared\*\aedmsgdump.exe to dump results.dpbcl
