Description of how to solve project target error.



I get an error that states "DevPartner Error Detection does not support analysis for the current target -(null)."


This pertains to version 8.0 of BoundsChecker.

This problem occurs because version 8.0 restricts target path and project types more strictly than 7.2.  This usually occurs if you've got a dll project open, for example, and you have a target executable set as the exe for debugging.  The workaround currently is to modify the solution to contain a dummy console application whose target path has been set to the exe in question.  By making the startup project an EXE project instead of a DLL project, you can work around this version 8.0 restriction.  

It has been fixed in version 8.1.
