Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Remote build on MAC fails with SSH not found by RSync


I can't get remote compilation to work with Mac OS High Sierra. I generated the SSH keys, installed DeltaCopy, I can SSH in the machine, seen and reachable on the local network, installed XCode on the Mac.

Do I need to install anything on the Mac?

Here is the first error from Visual Studio running on the Microsoft Windows PC.

 2>  Reflection code generated for MyProject in 4.0491604 seconds

Hi, I can see this thread is quite old, but without answers, so here I am, trying to find a better solution for the same thing.

The issue is that for some unknown to be reason RSync is not working correctly when you have another ssh.exe visible in your path. What Is working for me is just searching for all ssh.exe's and renaming them.

For example I have Windows 10 with Openssh module installed and a Git with it's own ssh. When renaming them to something else this do work, but it's not ideal solution.

From cmd you can find them by writing "where ssh.exe".

Anyways give it a try as this can get you started.

I just fix this by changing the "ssh" to "./ssh". After searching for this before making new pull request I found somebody already did the same change. This is the commit from the pull request:

Oh man you are a life saver!!!! Thanks so much for this. I've been debugging all day to get this working. Almost gave up and went home and stumbled onto your post.

Very happy with this solution! Thanks again!
