I have created this PR:

As you can see it has failed because some projects don't produce PDB's (which is fine for me). But the tool returns -1 because it allows people to use a strict mode to check for all projects. In this case it's not necessary, but I don't want the build to fail on a non-0 exit code. How can I allow -1 to be returned?

    A quick idea - you can do a "wrapping" batch file, say gitlink.cmd and set exit code to 0 before exit.

    Good idea. In the meantime I have decided to just make it work on all projects, but I will keep this in mind until next time.

    You should do this -

    command && exit 0

    Proof that it works

    Look at the next few lines, that was throwing errors and exiting with non-zero exit code

    Pretty sure that should be:

    command & exit 0

    with only a single ampersand. Otherwise, it stops when the command stops and that is the error code you get.

    Hi Jeff,
    You are likely correct there.
