Building CrashFix from Source

CrashFix binary files are available on our Download page. But, if you want, you can build CrashFix yourself from source. This page provides instructions on how to do that in Windows or in Linux operating systems.

Building CrashFix in Windows

Building CrashFix Service

To build CrashFix service from source, you will need Visual Studio 2010 or later. Go to SOURCE_DIR\crashfix_service directory in CrashFix source directory and open the CrashFix_vs2010.sln file.

In Visual Studio window, select Release in the Configuration manager and press F7 to start build.

Building Service Installer

To build CrashFix service installer, you will need NSIS install system. After you install NSIS, go to SOURCE_DIR\crashfix_service\service_installer directory and right-click installer.nsi file. From the context menu, choose Compile NSIS Script item. When compiler finishes, you should be able to see the generated installer named like crashfix-service-1.0.x-Win32.exe.

Building CrashFix in Linux

We assume you use Debian or Linux Ubuntu.

Building CrashFix Service

First, you need to install CMake (used for generating makefiles), Linux headers (build-essential) and RPM (to build RPM packages). To do that, type the following from your command shell:

sudo apt-get install cmake build-essential rpm

To generate makefiles, go to SOURCE_DIR and type the following:

cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release

Next, to build CrashFix service, type the following:


Building DEB and RPM Packages

After the build finishes, generate DEB and RPM packages by typing the following:

cpack .

This will generate the crashfix-service-1.0.x-Linux-i386.deb and crashfix-service-1.0.x-Linux-i386.rpm packages.
