Re: Cannot build debug/-Zi using VS 2010 SP1 via ssh with public key auth from local administrator account

Have you tried VS 2012?   Have you checked with MS about this?

I  can't use VS 2012 for now, because none of the 4 Windows build machines I
use are running Windows 7 or newer.  I suppose that if this drags out, that
may become my only option.

As far as checking with MS, I have not. My best guess, since all 4
machines received
the same upgrade to VS 2010 SP1, was that something had changed in the way
authentication was handled for the pdb database between VS 2008 and VS 2010 SP1
(actually, the problem seemed to occur between VS 2010 and VS 2010 SP1, but that
could be because the machine wasn't rebooted, etc)
and that was incompatible with a change that occurred in CYGWIN somewhere
between 1.7.5 and 1.7.20.

It's worth trying 1.7.22.

I've since tried the following:
- running ssh-host-config on (a) and rebooting, with no effect
- completely removing CYGWIN and all traces of sshd
( and reinstalling on
(a), with no effect

We discourage people from following Cygwin advice from ad-hoc sites.  In
this case, it provides a synopsis of how to do this and then points to a
link in the Cygwin FAQ from where the synopsis came.  Two things should
make anyone think twice about the information at this site:

  1. It points to the Cygwin FAQ as the source.
  2. The link to the Cygwin FAQ is broken.

This is a good indication that the information you're getting is second-hand and outdated. Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence for
these sites proclaiming to have useful Cygwin information.  That's why we
discourage consulting them.

Currently, I don't see anything that egregious at this site so I think
you're OK for now.

- completely removing VS 2010 and all related packages (I think), and
trying to build using the untouched version of VS 2008 I had previously been
using, and now building debug across CYGWIN/ssh/pub key with VS 2008 fails
as well

Yeah, that of course assumes that the uninstall undid all that the install
did.  There's not a good way to verify that.  If you can narrow down the
time-frame (with the Cygwin Time Machine for example - Google it) when you
see the problem appear, that could help find a solution, assuming you're
still seeing the problem with 1.7.22.
