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


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


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


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.
