View Full Version : Patch creation fails: failure due to large (11MB .war) file?

I'm having a problem generating a minor upgrade (patch) between two releases of a product (build 29 and build 30).

I'm using the Standalone build COM automation API to build the patch.

Specifically, the patch creation log fails with a message which says:

ERROR: Cannot create patch file for 'H:\PreviousReleases\Build 30\CD-ROM\.\program files\Kalido\Reference Data Management\.\WebApp\krdm.war' at 'D:\DOCUME~1\Alastair\LOCALS~1\Temp\~pcw_tmp.tmp\Family\00073.PAT'.

The .WAR files (web application server resources, binary) are big -> approx 8MB each. In addition, the two files are different sizes, so the installer will no doubt be attempting to produce a delta.

The XP machine on which I'm building has plenty of disk space and memory (768MB RAM, 20-25GB).

Any ideas?
