You may encounter problems when including stublib.h in order to link directly with Bug Validator.
Include path problems
Ensure that your project C preprocessor include paths reference both of the stub and stublib subdirectories in the installation directory of Bug Validator.
For example, if Bug Validator is installed in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Software Verify\Bug Validator
Then add the following paths for all configurations; Debug, Release, etc:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Software Verify\Bug Validator\stub
C:\Program Files (x86)\Software Verify\Bug Validator\stublib
If you include stublib.h, your project must have included windows.h first, (or see below for an alternative).
If you fail to include windows.h then stublib.h will refer to some none-existent datatypes, causing compiler errors similar to the ones shown below.
Here's an example program that will not compile:
To fix this problem simply include windows.h before stublib.h
If including windows.h is not an option, you can just define the following types:
#define LONG long
You may find that you can't use svlBVStubService.lib / svlBVStubService_x64.lib because your linker doesn't understand the format of the lib file.
If that happens you can use the code below to compile the two functions that would be provided by those libraries.
