We recommend using Visual Studio 2017

/FR, /Fr (Create .Sbr File)


The latest version of this topic can be found at -FR, -Fr (Create .Sbr File).

Creates .sbr files.


During the build process, the Microsoft Browse Information File Maintenance Utility (BSCMAKE) uses these files to create a .BSC file, which is used to display browse information.

/FR creates an .sbr file with complete symbolic information.

/Fr creates an .sbr file without information on local variables.

If you do not specify filename, the .sbr file gets the same base name as the source file.

/Fr is deprecated; use /FR instead. For more information, see Deprecated and Removed Compiler Options in Compiler Options Listed by Category.

Do not change the .sbr extension. BSCMAKE requires the intermediary files to have that extension.
