Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Packaging problem with Shipping

alt text link text


I' m in trouble with the Shipping mode of the Packaging. I' m not able to understand what I' m missing with the settings, but when the packaging ends, I don' t obtain an "[ProjectName]-Win32-Shipping.exe.exe". The final shipping-packaged project is not different from the development-packaged project, actually at the end it have been exorted as "[ProjectName].exe".

Thank you in advance for any help!

Hi albibi52,

I see in your logs you are getting a successful build, but not with the expected "long name." Why do you need the long name instead of the short name?

Thank you for your answer Steve!

Because I had some problems running the .exe in another machine, so I've thought that the Shipping-Packaging didn' t succed even if all the process seems to be correct! So(I'm a beginner,obviously) the Shipping-Packaging don't need necessarly the long form name?

No, but the .exe will need to be launched within the packaged folder. So you will need to send the entire folder including the .exe; If they (the end user) remove(s) the .exe from the folder, it will not work. However, they can make a shortcut from the .exe and place that on the desktop and move the folder to any directory they like.

Try this and let me know if it does not resolve your issue.

I've tried to run the same exe in different computer and despite some errors caused by antivirus or missing Visual Studio element, it worked pretty well!

Glad to hear it's working... just to clarify, you include the support folder along with the .exe correct?

Yes, everytime i've tried to run the exe the support folder came along with it! Thank you for your help!
