CL Wrapper (GL): errors with Visual Studio 2005 / 2008 / 2010
Posted by Yoni Davidson on 28 April 2014 03:01 PM

Symptoms:

The build fails with "CL Wrapper (GL)" error message.

Cause:

This problem might be related to IncrediBuild PDB file synchronization mechanism that in some rare cases may cause to this problem.

Workaround:

1. On the coordinator machine, please right click on the IncrediBuild tray icon -> Coordinator Monitor.
2. Mark the initiator machine (if you have several initiator machines, use the ctrl key to mark all the Initiator machines) -> right click ->Set Registry Value
3. Make sure that the "Value Category" is set to: Builder
4. Under the "Name" please write: PdbForwardingMode
5. Under the "Data" please write: 0
6. Please perform full solution clean and then rebuild the solution.

The PDBForwardingMode controls IncrediBuild's acceleration feature which basically treats pdb files in a different manner on each of the agents in order to reduce the build time.
There is no effect on the build results by disabling this feature (PDBForwardingMode=0) and the only affect might be a slightly slower build time with Solutions containing a lot of linking steps.
