We recommend using Visual Studio 2017

Unique Build Options


Nearly all of the build options offered for desktop compilers are also available for device compilers, and are implemented in identical ways. Linker option implementation is identical in both environments.

For a list of compiler options that are common to both desktop compilers and device compilers, see Shared Build Options.

The following table shows compiler options that support device compilers in a way that differs significantly from desktop implementations.

Option Description

/callcap - Enable callcap profiling

Inserts callcap profiling hooks at the beginning and end of each function.

In addition, each supported microprocessor family has processor-specific compiler options that implement unique functionality.
