Automate error capture in your Windows C++ development
The Backtrace Visual Studio Extension automates most of the process of installing, configuring, and integrating Crashpad error capture into Windows C++ development. The extension turns manual and error-prone processes that can takes hours-to-days into a few easy steps that take minutes.
Compiling Crashpad for every combination of target platform (Win32, Win64, etc) and release type (Debug vs Release) takes hours-to-days. Backtrace provides binaries for each combination of target platform and release type, reducing this process to minutes.
Adding Crashpad binaries to builds and ensuring the right binary is used for the right combination of target platform and release type takes 5-15 manual steps. Backtrace provides a Wizard to do this correctly every time, reducing the process to a few clicks that only take a few minutes.
Creating Crashpad Template Files with correct paths, include statements, and configurations is a completely manual process that has to be done from scratch or by copying previous work and takes hours. Backtrace generates Template Files for developers to edit, removing inconsistency across builds and reducing the process to minutes.
Creating a Post-Build Script to check if Symbols exist and then uploading the correct Symbol files for every combination of target platform and release type is a manual process that takes hours. Backtrace generates Post-Build Scripts for developers, reducing the process to minutes.
