Welcome to the Visual Studio MI Debug Engine ("MIEngine")

Debug Release
master Build Status Build Status

The Visual Studio MI Debug Engine ("MIEngine") provides an open-source Visual Studio extension that enables debugging with debuggers that support the gdb Machine Interface ("MI") specification such as GDB, LLDB, and CLRDBG.

What is MIEngine?

MIEngine is a Visual Studio Debug Engine that understands Machine Interface ("MI"). A Debug Engine is an implementation of the Core Debug Interfaces, enabling the VS UI to drive debugging. Machine Interface is a text-based protocol developed by GDB that allows a debugger to be used as a separate component of a larger system. Additional information:

Debug Multiple Platforms

  • Support for debugging C/C++ on Android and iOS.
  • Debug on any platform that supports GDB, such as Linux and even Raspberry Pi.

Prerequisites

MIEngine requires Visual Studio 2015 with the following features installed:

  • Programming Languages -> Visual C++ -> Common Tools for Visual C++
  • Cross Platform Mobile Development -> Visual C++ Mobile Development
  • Cross Platform Mobile Development -> Microsoft Visual Studio Emulator for Android
  • Common Tools -> Visual Studio Extensibility Tools
