VC 2010 Express build warnings, multiple 'Cannot find or open the PDB file'
VC 2010 build warnings. Followed guide and installation. Most tutorials build OK, but with many (fifty or more) warnings. Two examples from debug output: 'Tutorials.exe': Loaded 'C:\Windows\System32\kernel32.dll', Cannot find or open the PDB file
'Tutorials.exe': Loaded 'D:\programs\EsenthelEngineSDK\Installation\PhysX\PhysXDevice.dll', Binary was not built with debug information.

Try to rebuild your project. or clean->build.

There is always evil somewhere, you just have to look for it properly.

Clean->build, same number warnings. Tried enabling, in debug, Microsoft Symbol Server. Slow build; many warnings.

If all else fails, I'll try uninstall VC 2010 Express and install VC 2008 Express.

Problem resolved: uninstalled VC 2010 express, fresh install VC 2008 Express. Built and ran several Esenthel tut samples without linker problems.

For those new to both Esenthel and VC: general Googling shows VC 2010 Express more installation difficulties (as I had) and slower builds than VC 2008 Express. Apparently full version VC 2010 is better/OK. Hope this helps other Esenthel newbies. Thanks Dynad for quick response.

Is there any way we can get working 2010 solution? I'm trying to move away from 2008 Express and focus on the new 2010 version.

There is a solution to this problem somewhere on this forum.. but although Esenthel has fixed this for 64bit builds with the latest releases.

I literally JUST downloaded this last night and tried to set it up. Any idea where the solution would be?

But I want to be able to build x64 projects with express. Is there a way to be able to do this or no? It looks like Esenthel figured out a way to get it to work.

*Fixed
For anyone that has this problem follow this link.

Basically, all I needed to do was download the latest DirectX Runtimes.

Hope this helps. And yes, this is an x64 project using Visual Studio 2010 C++.
