Monitoring a stand-alone C++ native application


Monitoring a stand-alone C++ native application

I was excited to see that there is a C/C++ agent.  I downloaded and installed it and that's where the trouble started.  There was an error in the install.bat file.  Once I got past this I added the sample code to the startup routine.  I can't get the function appd_sdk_init to return as successful.  It always returns -1.  I restarted the AppDynamics.Agent.Coordinator service but it still didn't work.  The docs say to run some command called which doesn't work on WIndows.


I'd like to at least get a C/C++ agent installed.  Can someone help me get over this hump?

Sorry that you are facing issues.But I guess we can discuss further on either



All three posts seem to be regarding the same issue.Please note that coordinator service is only applicable for .NET agent and not the C++ agent.


Thanks and Regards,
