Partial builds still need all files to be present

If my project file creates Windows and Linux installers, is there a way to build just the Windows installer without having to have all the files used to build the Linux installer available ? Currently when I ask it to "Build", InstallAnywhere reports missing "referenced" files even if they are not used for the Windows installer at all, which means I have to assemble both sets of platform files even if I want to generate only one installer.

I had hoped the Build Configuration and/or Tags features would help with this, but apparently not.

Your builds are from the Advanced Designer or from the command line?

Hi arrbee,

You would need the entire set of linux and windows files in this case to build the project.

Thanks,

Ok, thanks for confirmation that I need all the files present - I had been wondering whether I could consolidate a couple of dozen project files into one using the Build Configurations feature, but if I need to generate all the files for all of the configurations every time I want to build a single one then that would be worse than now.

( I know the command line build has an option to ignore errors, unfortunately this makes it difficult to identify real errors. )
