Problem in building project using ISCmdBld.exe

I am trying to build Basic MSI project using this bat file:

"C:\Program Files\InstallShield\2010\System\ISCmdBld.exe" -p "C:\Perforce\products\Server\Installer\ImageServerInstaller\ImageServerInstaller.ism" -l PATH_TO_IMAGESERVERPAGE_FI="C:\Perforce\products\Server\Installer\Tinderbox Builds\20091028_GA_ImageServer_1.6.102226\Build\ImageServerPageOverrides" -e Y -b "c:\"

This bat file runs successfully if I remove the -b parameters i.e. -b "c:\".
However with -b paramter, it gives error:

ISDEV : fatal error -5006: Could not save "C:\Perforce\products\Server\Installer\ImageServerInstaller\ImageServerInstall
ISDEV : fatal error -6199: Internal build error
ISDEV : error -5047: Cannot create directory
Default Configuration\Release - 2 error(s), 0 warning(s)

Build finished at Nov 20 2009 04:54 PM

Please help. It is driving me crazy.

Hi Naveed,

Pass an additional parameter -v to the IsCmdBld.exe when it is failing. This will provide some more information about the failure.

Thanks Alpesh,

Detailed log with /v helped. The problem was that .ism file was already open with Visual Studio 2008. I closed the all programs that were using .ism file and then ran the IsCmdBuild.exe; it worked. Yahoo 🙂
