Increasing Build Log Verbosity for Visual Studio

Last edited on


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 its 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.


Transmitting the build to Squish Coco’s support

Avoid screenshots, they are in general not containing the relevant information. Copy/paste the contain to a file and send it to us.
