Fortify 16.20 now failing to Translate C# project
We've been using Fortify for 2 years now, and have a pretty decent pipeline including build automation for our Fortify scans. With the release of 16.20, one of our projects is now failing on the translation step, and I can't find why. When running the sourceanalzer command:
sourceanalyzer -64 -Xmx5200M -Xms600M -Xss24M -b ESB devenv .\Esb.sln /REBUILD Release
I get the following error on our webbased api project:
Running: TRANSLATE : "-64" "-Xmx5200M" "-Xms600M" "-Xss24M" -dotnet-version 4.5 @"C:\Users\Tyson.hoffman\AppData\Local\Fortify\VS-14.0-16.20\Esb\Esb.
[error]: Translator execution failed. Please consult the Troubleshooting section of the User Manual.
Translator returned status -2147467261:
DOTNET-DEBUG: Unhandled exception: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
I can't find any additional information to tell me why it failed. Does anyone know where I can find log files, error code information, etc??
Assistance is much appreciated.
Add "-verbose -debug -logfile C:\whatever.log" and then use whatever log viewer (I use baretail) to tail the logs as they're written to the file.
Find "Fortify Static Code Analyzer 6.21.0005" or whatever SCA version you are running, then review the logs before and after that for errors.
Look for where or if it exits inadvertently...
Post your findings from the log file.
