Output directory for the MS debug symbol .pdb file generated by the compiler while building source files.

This property specifies the directory into which the MS debug symbols will be placed by the compiler. This property is initialized by the value of the CMAKE_COMPILE_PDB_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY variable if it is set when a target is created.


The compiler-generated program database files are specified by the /Fd compiler flag and are not the same as linker-generated program database files specified by the /pdb linker flag. Use the PDB_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY property to specify the latter.

This property is not implemented by the Visual Studio 6 generator.
