  • Build time automation?

    We need to generate 4 different SETUP.exe's. Ideally, we would be able to run SF 4 times in a batch process, passing in different design-time constants.

    Presently, we are looking at changing the design-time constants manually and running SF 4 times. (We anticipate this number growing to 12 in the near future.)

    Can anyone think of a clever way to do this, perhaps employing the Run Before Build capability?

    Or more specifically, is there any way to establish the value of a design-time constant other than manually setting it up? Can SF be run from another process in such a way as to generate the output SETUP.exe?

    Thanks for any ideas.

    I do it all the time. Checl out this link:

    See the /B option. Basically you make an INI file with the constants and pass it in on the command line. We use this on our automated builds here at IR.

      Thanks Brett, this appears to be exactly what we need.
