Built-in terminal doesn't keep previously set variables
4 months, 1 week ago Edited by litterattus on Dec. 29, 2020, 3:56 p.m. Reason: Initial post
In my build.bat I have the following:
1
2
3
4
5
IF NOT DEFINED vcvars_set (
  call "D:\Program Files\Visual Studio Community\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvars64.bat"
  set vcvars_set=1
)
REM whatever else...


However, whenever I build (even without closing the compilation panel), each time vcvars64.bat gets called.

If I manually call build.bat from an external shell like cmd, no such thing happens: vcvars64.bat is called only the first time.

There is no build in terminal. When you call an external command/program, 4coder will use CreateProcess to execute the program, and when the program ends, it's environment (environment variable included) is freed.

A simple way to keep "vcvars" available is to call "vcvars64.bat" in a console (or batch script) and open 4coder from that console.
