repository files missing from final build

Guest

I've built and imported a custom component in CD that includes several files.
Now, i
know that all the files are included after importing with CDM and they
SHOULD be
installed to the correct path, however less than half of the files in the
component
are actually making it to the final build folder.

- there are 86 files referenced in my component in both TD and CM going to
the folder %11%\pdesk
- there are 86 files in my database after importing with CDM into the
repository.. the internal repository folder created by XPE CDM is C:\Windows
Embedded Data\Repositories\\{A5D00BEC-C8B8-40F7-8B3F-B2F7B3D0315F}
- however of the 86 files, only 28 of the files are in the final build folder
c:\builds\windows\system32\pdesk
- there are no errors during building of the component
- the missing files are side-by-side of files that are included. There
doesn't seem to be any logic to explain this situation.

Any advice?

Paul,

No advices since problem is strange, but one question instead?

Are all files located in same flat repository folder?
They must be in same source location, subfolders are not supported.

Slobodan

Slobodan,

Thanks for your response. I checked again and i can confirm that there are
no sub folders (it is flat.) There are 86 files, no folders in the
C:\Windows Embedded Data\Repositories\{A5D00BEC-C8B8-40F7-8B3F-B2F7B3D0315F}
folder -- the same which the component references in CDM. I've now noticed
this same problem with another printer driver component i've built. It only
has 3 files in the repository which should be copyed to system32, the first
two copy but it seems to have dropped the *.hlp from the build. I'm at a
loss short of manually copying the files to the build folder.

Thanks,
Paul

Paul,

Please clear up the "Do not copy help files for this configuration" option on the Configuration settings page.
The same please do for your custom component included in the Configuration.

Help files are likely needed to get the printer driver working (known issue).

KM,

Excellent! Thank you. This did indeed solve my problem with both
components. The driver was hanging on the *.cnt (which turns out to be a help
table of contents.) I saw that setting before, but never would have
attributed to the problem with my custom components. Apparently it's not
limited to just *.hlp... also the *.cnt *.txt *.rtf files, which make up the
balance of the missing files.

Thanks for the help and the prompt reply,

Paul.
