See Visual Cpp 2010-2012 Project Discoverer - 1.1 - Release Notes for more information.
This discoverer detects projects based on the presence of Visual Studio C++ *.vcxproj files.
This extension should be used when you are analyzing Visual Studio based C++ applications. The discoverer will automatically create one project for every *.vcxproj file that is delivered for analysis and one corresponding Analysis Unit will then be created for analysis purposes.
The discoverer contains a Project Exclusion Rule which is enabled by default: where an equivalent *.vcproj file (Visual C++ 2002 - 2008) is also discovered, the *.vcxproj file will always be used in preference. Following the first delivery of an application where the discoverer was automatically downloaded and installed (Console ≥ 2.4), the rule will then be available in Console UI for subsequent version deliveries:
The discoverer is already embedded in AIP Core with the release number 1.0.0 (LTS). This embedded version of the extension will not undergo any further updates and instead all functional changes/customer bug fixes will be actioned in the extension.
