Visual Studio not building project
Posted on 2002-03-07
OS : Windows NT 4
Env : Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise edition.
We are working on a project that has 40 c++ application projects and 40 c++ dll projects and a dozen of c++ static lib projects.
To build all of them, there is a masterproj project with a dummy c++ file with only main().
All the c++ exe and dll projects are made dependencies for the masterproj.
Individual components are developed and built on developers machines and maintained by configuration mgmt tool CCC Harvest.
Configuration team check out the projects in their build machine. Build the components and distribute to QA test servers.
I recently changed code for two components and checked with the configuration mgmt system.
For the two components I changed recently, latest version of the source files, individual project files (dsp, dsw) are checked out into the build machine. Also the latest version of the masterproj's dsw file is checked out.
When the masterproj.exe is built, Visual studio builds all the components but for the two components I modified.
I opened the masterproj.exe's dsw file in notepad and manually verfieid for the dependency of my two components and it is present.
Still my components are not built.
Did anyone ever faced a problem similar to this ?
BTW, I checked out the masterproj in my development machine and built the components. All the components including my two components are built perfectly.
Thanks for the help.
