.ard file not created - visual studio 2008

Hi, I'm creating addon installer for SAP B1 2007 SP1 PL05 running on Windows Server 2008 virtual machine. Visual Studio 2008 and B1DE 2.0 are installed on a Windows 7 virtual machine.

I followed the steps to create new project using SAP B1 AddOnInstaller .NET Wizard. The AddOnRegDataGen.bat ran automatically when the wizard finished, and I also manually ran the .bat file, but in the bin folder only these 4 files were created:

Installer.exe, Installer.vshost.exe, Installer.vshost.exe.manifest, Installer.xml

The .exe file is not using the name I gave to the Installation project, and .ard file is missing.

In AddonRegDataGen.bat the version is "20090901" - it only contains numbers, so this could not be the problem.

Please help!

    Windows 7 is not a supported OS as of now. Therefore, you may need to test using some other lower version windows.

    Hi Yi,

    Could you take a look at AddonRegDataGen.bat under AddOnRegDataGenFile folder?

    Can you find AddOnRegDataGen.exe path as indicated in the 1st line of AddonRegDataGen.bat?

    Typically it is under:

    "C:\Program Files\SAP\SAP Business One SDK\Tools\AddOnRegDataGen\AddOnRegDataGen.exe"

    Please be sure SDK component installed and correct the batch file with the right path of AddOnRegDataGen.exe.

    Then run the batch manually. Or you can create ARD with AddOnRegDataGen.exe directly.

    Kind Regards, Yatsea
