The VS Code xPack C/C++ Managed Build Extension is available as ilg-vscode.xpack from the Visual Studio Code Marketplace.
It can also be installed from a terminal:
code --install-extension ilg-vscode.xpack
This specific version can be installed with the following command, although generally it is recommended to use the latest version:
code --install-extension firstname.lastname@example.org
The 0.4.16 release is generally compatible with previous releases.
- [#22] - due to a bug in the logic to redraw the xPack Actions tree, after
package.json, all attempts to perform any actions via the play icon failed with an error (Error running command xpack.runAction: Running the contributed command: ‘xpack.runAction’ failed. This is likely caused by the extension that contributes xpack.runAction.). Possible workarounds were to close/reopen the project, or to restart VS Code. The problem was caused by a member of the
TreeDataProviderclass which, in a previous release, was erroneously renamed. The name was reverted to
onDidChangeTreeData, and this fixed the bug. Many thanks to Erich Styger for helping identify this bug.
The ilg-vscode.xpack extension is fully portable and works on any platform supported by VS Code; internally it relies on xpm, which is also a portable application running on all platforms supported by npm/node.
However, for projects using binary xPacks, they are available mainly on the modern platforms, like Windows/macOS/Linux.
