Running Projects Created with CMake

After you have created Visual Studio projects using cmake, you can use Incredibuild to distribute and accelerate these projects. This can be done either in the command line or directly in Visual Studio. If you want greater control over how the distribution is managed, you can create a profile.xml file that will be used when the project is run.

  • If you are running the project from the command line, you can name the profile.xml file anything you want, and put it anywhere you want, as long as you point to it in the build command. For details, see Creating a Profile XML File.

  • If you are running the project from within Visual Studio, you must name the profile.xml file ib_profile.xml and place the file in that same folder as the solution (.sln) file. Projects run from within Visual Studio will then automatically use that profile.xml file.
