I have created a .ini file (as follows) to build my project. However, it always fails saying that it cannot find the selected merge module. The process works fine on a machine with a full Installshield installation, but will not work on my build server with a Stand Alone build only installed.

I have copied all the merge modules to a C:\Tools\MergeModules folder and used this as the ONLY merge module path on both my development PC and my Build server. Builds on my development PC, doesn't build on my build server.

Has anyone any ideas of what I might be doing wrong?

Is there is a debug mode to show me what is happening. Nothing about merge modules seems to be logged to the normal log files created.

Hope someone can help,
regards,
Trevor

The .ini file to control the build is:



[Project]
Name="KPSelector.ism"
** BuildLabel=Label1 -a Product configuration.

Name=KPSelector
SetupEXE=yes

[Mode]
