My team is developing UEFI shell applications and I’m interested to know if we could use the Intel System Studio + System Debugger for source level debug (code to be written in C++). Our development platform is a Windows host connected to the target via ITP XDP3. The target system is an Intel validation platform booted to the EFI shell. All development and debug will be EFI shell applications and not the UEFI boot process.
If we can use System Studio + System Debugger, is the UEFI agent required (and BIOS compiled with SOURCE_DEBUG_ENABLE set)?
Yes, you can use System Debugger to debug UEFI EFI app or driver.
However, UEFI agent is not used anymore but you need to build a BIOS of "debug" build or "release with symbol" build
