To use, just unzip into some directory. Now start a Windows command-line (i.e. Run... -> cmd) and navigate to the directory. Just run prefast.bat to run PREfast over the exercise file, or prefast.bat FILENAME if you renamed the exercise file.
Wine on Linux command line (historic)
Not sure how well this still works; just installing Windows in a
VM and then following the instructions above is probably easier...
PREfast can be run on Unix/Linux using wine. Install wine using your systems package manager or download and install it manually from its website.
Unpack the TAR.GZ archive - again the link is provided by e-mail. Now, on the command-line go to this directory and use ./prefast to check the exercise file or ./prefast FILENAME if you renamed the file.
Wine may (will?) complain about a non-existent directory C:\users\pim\Temp. To fix that
Michal reported he also had to install the msxml3 library
(using winetricks and customized prefix pointing to the "dotwine"
you could try making a symlink
YOUR_PREFAST_DIR/dotwine/drive_c/users/pim, where YOUR_PREFAST_DIR is your PREfast directory,
and make this link poins to YOUR_PREFAST_DIR/dotwine/drive_c/users/YOUR_LINUX_USERNAME/
create a directory named 'Temp' under
'dotwine/drive_c/users/pim/'. You can use command 'mkdir -p
dotwine/drive_c/users/pim/Temp' by running it under the
Edit 'dotwine/user.reg' and change the occurrences of 'pim'
string to your Linux user name. The lines 148 and 149 are those
setting the environment variable for your TEMP directory, which
must exist for the compiler 'cl.exe' to run.
