visual studio 2010 setup project build fail
Posted on 2010-11-22
I am creating a Setup and Deployment project using Visual Studio 2010 Professional.
During build time, I get the same error multiple times for different files Unable to build file named 'file_name'.
All I'm doing is setting up certain files to be copied to the destination (preserving the folder structure).
I looked around and found some solutions which obviously did not help.
I have a total of 15,400 files in a sub folder structure.
I tried to set the build properties to
1. as loose uncompressed files
2. in setup file
3. in cabinet files (100 MB)
but all of them fail with the same above error.
EDIT: I found some references to maybe having a hash or a version for each file. I'm not sure how to check if this is already enabled or the process on how to enable it.
