VCCLCompilerTool.EnablePREfast Property 

Gets or sets whether Native Code Analysis is enabled.

Namespace: Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine (in microsoft.visualstudio.vcprojectengine.dll)

bool EnablePREfast { get; set; }
/** @property */
boolean get_EnablePREfast ()

/** @property */
void set_EnablePREfast (/** @attribute InAttribute() */ boolean pbEnablePREfast)

function get EnablePREfast () : boolean

function set EnablePREfast (pbEnablePREfast : boolean)

Property Value

true to enable code analysis (/analyze).

Additional options can be set using the AdditionalOptions property.

NoteNote

/analyze is only available in Enterprise (team development) versions for x86 compilers.

The following example demonstrates how to use the EnablePREfast and AdditionalOptions properties to set the /analyze:WX- switch. (Both properties are required to do this.) Specifying /analyze:WX- means that code analysis warnings will not be treated as errors when compiling with /WX. For more information, see /analyze (Enterprise Code Analysis).

To run this example, enter and run this example as outlined in How to: Compile and Run the Automation Object Model Code Examples. Then, in the new instance of Visual Studio, load a Visual C++ project and use the Add-in Manager to activate the add-in.
