View Full Version : Problem making Nightly build script

We build 2 flavors of the same project a night Debug & Release.
I need to make 2 setup's from the same ise file.
I'm using PERL to drive the build script and calling isbldcmd.exe, all this is working fine.
My files need to be pulled from 2 seperate places though (the Debug drop point or the Release drop point). I tried setting a system env variable in my perl script and calling isbldcmd and then in the ISE project setting a dynamic file link to <%VAR> (and <%VAR%> and [%VAR] and [%VAR%]...)
to pull in the files from either the debug or release drop points. This does not work.

Also how does one set a shortcut to point to an EXE that will be included as part of a dynamic file? given the file might not "exist" at this time?

Any help greatly appreciated.

I'm doing nightly build as well. But I compile in one subfolder and build setup in another folder. Files are copied over from different version different release to setup building folder and build setup files. Since it works at night, I don't case take two hours or three hours to finish.
