HelloWorld Astra SDK issue

I am working my way through the hello world example for the astra sdk.

After adding the initialize and terminate calls, I run the program but I don’t see diagnostic messages come out over the console. The message I added for “hit enter to exit program” shows, but nothing else shows in the cmd window that is opened.

In the output window of visual studio I see messages about loading / unloading dlls and for a few of the dlls I see a message that it cannot find or open the PDB file.

I’m assuming this isn’t the diagnostic info that should be printed?

I added the include files and libs from the AstraSDK that I downloaded into the project.

my code is below

#include <astra/astra.hpp>


int main(int argc, char** argv)


std::cout << "hit enter to exit program" << std::endl;

return 0;


I think this is the normal behaviour. You are just at the very first step in the HelloWorld tutorial. You are just initializing and waiting for input to close the program.
