I have just activated the Vulkan Best Practices Validation and due to that I get the following warning:
Validation Layer(WARNING): Validation Warning: [ UNASSIGNED-BestPractices-vkCreateInstance-specialuse-extension-debugging ] Object 0: VK_NULL_HANDLE, type = VK_OBJECT_TYPE_INSTANCE; | MessageID = 0x822806fa | CreateInstance(): Attempting to enable extension VK_EXT_debug_utils, but this extension is intended to support use by applications when debugging and it is strongly recommended that it be otherwise avoided.
Naturally, I don't need to see this in a debug build, so I'd like to filter this message out in debug builds. According to the docs one can use the message id filter with the
By default, the settings file must be named
vk_layer_settings.txtand reside in the working directory of the targeted application.
I have checked the current directory with
std::filesystem::current_path() (pointing to
/my/project/dir/build/src/) and put the layer settings file there, and I have also tried to put it next to the debug .exe file (at
The contents of my file are:
khronos_validation-message_id_filter = "UNASSIGNED-BestPractices-vkCreateInstance-specialuse-extension-debugging"
I have tried to use the id instead of the message name:
khronos_validation-message_id_filter = "0x822806fa"
Neither of the two has worked at either of the locations. How do I correctly use this filter then?
If this is in any way important, the project is build with CMake with the main file residing at
/my/project/dir/CMakeLists.txt and the build done through
cd /my/project/dir/build cmake ..
And finally compiling the solution via Visual Studio 2022
