Per-configuration output directory for the MS debug symbol .pdb file generated by the compiler while building source files.

This is a per-configuration version of COMPILE_PDB_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY, but multi-configuration generators (VS, Xcode) do NOT append a per-configuration subdirectory to the specified directory. This property is initialized by the value of the CMAKE_COMPILE_PDB_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY_<CONFIG> 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_<CONFIG> property to specify the latter.
