building the installer from the command prompt

Hi,

I am building the installer from the command prompt using build.exe.

>>build.exe %IA_PATH_ESIGN_HOME%\%IA_PROJECT_FILE%

My problem is:

When a particular resource is not found that is required by IA project,Build is failing when i am building with GUI(i.e opening project with IA and Build).

But with build.exe from the command prompt it simply saying following resouce is missing from the project but preparing build successfully.

The following resources are missing from the project:
$ESIGN_HOME$\
f $ESIGN_HOME$\RegAsm.exe

Do i need to give some extra settings for build need to fail in case of preparing from build.exe when a particular resource is not found.

Thanks,
Vijji123

Open your project with the Advanced Designer, then from the Edit menu open the Preferences. In the newly opened window, in the first tab, (General Settings) there is this option: Command Line Builds where you should set to Fail if you want your command line builds to fail when a referenced file is missing!

Hi,

By default that option was checked in the Advanced Designer, still it is failing.
But it is showing "The following resources are missing from the project:" in the console.

Then maybe it is a regression in IA 2010, we need the developer that monitors this forum to confirm it (I haven't installed this version yet).

Hi Vijji123,

I tried reproducing this issue using commandline build.exe, but could not get it..
Here is an excerpt from the command line...
BuildInstaller: Asked to load D:\projectsIA\buildIssue\buildIssue.iap_xml
System's temporary directory = C:\Documents and Settings\p7104903\Local Setting
\Temp
Copying D:\projectsIA\buildIssue\buildIssueBuild.iap_xml. Using copy for build.
Original project unchanged
No VM Pack files exist in this directory

The following resources are missing from the project:
D:\games\
f D:\games\Pie2 Gates.exe
The Resource manager was unable to locate all resources for this project.
The Resource Manger settings are: Check for missing resources, fail build if
resources are missing.
To change these settings, change the appropriate properties in
in the Designer's preferences.

Please consult the InstallAnywhere manual for details.

Now based on this, i guess that whatever build output you might be seeing would be the output of a previous successful build.

Please let me know.

Hi Jiju,

Thanks for your reply.
I am sure that when ever i am building the installer from the command prompt,it is checking and giving information message on console and saying build successfully.

The same you can see above in the red.

If i open the same project in GUI, it is not allowing me to open the project if the specified resource is not found in the defined path.

So finally what i can say is there is problem with command prompt building.

Thanks,

Hi Vijji123,

There could be one more setting in that preferences dialog, which dictates behaviour for building multiple configurations in command line. It basically asks the user if he/she wants the build to carry on with the next configuration build if a given configuration build has failed. This flag should be set to "Stop Building". Please let me know if this helps.

Thanks,

Hi Jiju,

I am working with single project only.Single project picking resources from different home folders.If i open the same project using GUI,at the time of opening it self it giving error with the help of Resource Manager.If i build the same from command prompt it is giving resources not found but building successfully(i.e it is exting 0).

I am attaching General settings which i have in preferences tab here with.

Hi Vijji123,

This looks like an IA 2009 issue and this is an IA 2010 forum. I was trying to reproduce this issue on IA 2010 and was not reproducible on IA 2010.
