Installation using build\full.cmd

Jul 19, 2010 at 5:16 AM
I was trying the tridentworkflow-62345\build\full.cmd script. When I ran it on a machine with Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate and .NET Framework 4.0 Extended/Client Profile/Multi-targeting installed. The script checks the system but assumes the MSBUILD_4_0 variable. If this variable is not set then the installation fails (atleast for me). Worst part is installation fails without telling why it failed or how it can be corrected. It is upto the user to read the script and console.out to figure out the missing parts. The installation fails with #call Datalayer.sln /t:rebuild /fileLoggerParameters:LogFile=Datalayer.log /p:O utDir=\\ /p:Configuration= 'Datalayer.sln' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. The reason for this failure is MSBUILD_4_0 variable is not set. My command line: #echo %MSBUILD_4_0% %MSBUILD_4_0% Note: Line 18 needs to be instead of pushd ..\trident\product\DataLayer instead of pushd .\trident\product\DataLayer Similarly line 18, 37, 53, 72, 134 need to be ..\ instead of .\ Line 102, 146 should be ..\trident instead of trident Thanks, Ashish Bhangale

I see that the file path being referenced are not correct. For instance, the path "E:\tools\setup\createlicense.vbs" should be "E:\Open Source Trident\tridentworkflow-62345\tools\setup\createlicense.vbs" #cd E:\Open Source Trident\tridentworkflow-62345\Trident\Product\Setup #make Input Error: Can not find script file "E:\tools\setup\createlicense.vbs".

Hi Ashish Bhangale,

Can you please try the following steps to build a trident msi:
1. Open command prompt
2. Navigate to root folder of the Trident source code ($/Trident)
3. Run command: .\tools\build\smoke.cmd <product> <buildkind> <buildtype> <buildarch> .
    (Eg. .\tools\build\smoke.cmd product full debug x86)
4. The msi  can be found in the root drive.
    <Drive>:\ builds\product\<New_Build_Number>\setup\<buildtype>

These steps could also be found in Developer On-boarding Guide:

Thanks for the prompt reply. I think the script does not handle folder name with spaces, so I had to rename the folder. #cd E:\codeplexTrident\tridentworkflow-62345 #.\tools\build\smoke.cmd product full debug x86 "" No system-wide patches.

I have not installed Enterprise Library. I did not follow the document, skipped steps and jumped to scripts. I thought if there was an install script which could do most of the installation silently for me. Let me try this tomorrow. Thanks!
Jul 20, 2010 at 6:14 AM
I have .net framework 4.0 installed already, now I added wix2 binaries to path and installed wix3 in addition to Enterprise library. Still I run into errors. #.\tools\build\smoke.cmd product full debug x86 "" No system-wide patches. Testing .NET framework 2.0 Build 1656.0 Drop location: \builds\product\1656.0 No system-wide patches. FATAL: perl not found No BBPack specified. Using default source.

Hello Ashish,

Could you confirm if the 4.0Tools folder and v4.0.30319 folder are copied under \public\ext\urt ?

If you have all required softwares installed, please follow steps below as a Pre-build operation:

  1. Create a folder called “public” under the root of the TFS workspace. Create a folder “ext” under “public”. ($/Trident/public/ext)
  2. Copy the enterprise library binaries from “%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Enterprise Library 5.0\Bin” to “$/Trident/public/ext/enterpriselibrary/5.0”
  3. Copy all files from “%ProgramFiles%\MSBuild\Microsoft\Silverlight\v3.0” to “$/Trident/public/ext/Silverlight/v3.0”
  4. Copy the Wix2 binaries from the download location of Wix2 binaries to “$/Trident/public/ext/wix2”
  5. Copy files from Wix3 sdk from the download location of Wix3 binaries to “$/Trident/public/ext/wix3/sdk”
  6. Create a folder “urt” under “ext”. ($/Trident/public/ext/urt). Copy .Net framework 4.0 related binaries from the path “%Windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319” to “$/Trident/public/ext/urt/v4.0.30319”
  7. Copy the 4.0 related binaries from the path “%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A\bin\NETFX 4.0 Tools” to “$/Trident/public/ext/urt/4.0Tools”

Please refer to On-Boarding Guide: for folder structure of 'public' folder and detailed steps.

Let us know if you need any further help.
