Missing files after installation (InstallAnywhere 2008 VP1)

Hi

I seems to be having issues with building the installers, it seems to happen via a command line build yet the build is successful, only once we install a system are random files missing out of the installer. I then open the installer, build it and reinstall and then the files reappear, its never the same files and only seems to happen when building via the command line.

I have a build log of a command line where the installer missed a whole directory, i have only added extracts here as its quite large.

some of the extracts which dont seem right
Cleaning up...


XMLScriptWriter: No Installation Objects were skipped
Processing external properties...
Saving external properties...
ExternalPropertySaver.saveObjectsExternalProperties: GUIComponentData.bidiOption
()
returned an unsupported type for externalization: class java.lang.Integer
ExternalPropertySaver.saveObjectsExternalProperties: GUIComponentData.bidiOption

this happens quite a few times. followed by:

returned an unsupported type for externalization: class java.lang.Integer
ExternalPropertySaver.printExternalizableScriptObjectInfo():
GUIComponentData.getBidiOption() returned an unlocalizable value: Integer
ExternalPropertySaver.printExternalizableScriptObjectInfo():
GUIComponentData.getBidiOption() returned an unlocalizable value: Integer

Hi,

>> Why this bidiOption message is displaying when we add a label or text field etc in GetUserInput Panel ?
>> Please let us know the root cause of this exception and what we need to do for resolving it completely. Thanks for your valuable advise.

Thanks,

You should enforce the strict checking of resources before building your installers, this way you'll see if files are missing for the build.

Please find attachment of enforcement setting, is there any other place that this can be done?
