Hi,

My graphic project is using the software rasterizer to do an image comparision but it would seems that I cannot access the DX12 debug interface while running from an Appveyor VM.

It would seems that Graphics Tools for Windows 10 is not installed.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/debugger/getting-started-with-visual-studio-graphics-diagnostics?view=vs-2015&redirectedfrom=MSDN

It is possible to request it to be added to Appveyors ?

Best Regards

    I have run into anotjher issue trying to run DirectXShaderCompiler.

    https://github.com/microsoft/DirectXShaderCompiler/wiki/Running-Shaders

    Mentions that the Windows SDK runtimes redistributable should be installed, as the SDKs are already installed as mentioned here:

    https://www.appveyor.com/docs/windows-images-software/#windows-sdks

    I am building using VS 2017 so things should be fine but i am running into errors.

    The other solution would be to use experimental mode for DXIL.dll so my question would how is Developer Mode enabled by default on the VMs ?

    Sorry for the confusing thread and thank you for the support
