Just a followup on my question. I downloaded the 17a source code (BrainSuite GUI v.17a and command line tool source code [ 5.5 MB ]), and tried building in Visual Studio.
I noticed that the build failed, due to errors in one “+” operator definition in file “BrainSuite17a_src\3rdParty\include\strideiterator.h”. After I fixed that one error, everything built correctly and I got the ten missing command line tools I had been missing.
Could it be that, due to this one error, the command line tools failed to be included into the 17a release??
