Build failures can be difficult to troubleshoot while doing builds. All the information about the build is displayed inside the Visual Studio output window, but it’s build verbosity is in general too poor for a proper diagnostic: on newer version only a error message is displayed but the compiler invocation is not present.
This can be fixed by increasing build verbosity from within Visual Studio Options. We recommend switching it to Detailed: this displays errors, warnings and the invocation of the build tools.
- Start Visual Studio.
- Click on “Tools"->”Options…”. The following dialog should appear:
- Select the item “Project and Solutions"->”Build and Run”.
- Set the verbosity to Detailed for the fields “MSBuild project build log verbosity” and “MSBuild project build output verbosity”.
