Hi, 

The error message describes the problem:

ResolveArtLinksComponent error : The art input directory '..\..\Help\Art' does not exist.

This is a Sandcastle error.  Did you perhaps remove the Help\Art folder from your project?  If so, create a new Art folder within the Help folder and try building again.  (Note that it doesn't matter if the folder is empty.)

Hi,

According to the HTML Help Workshop compiler, the help file (.chm) was compiled successfully:

    Created d:\TFSTempFolder\ADAMS_Project\ACA R.5\Sources\Source\ADAMS\ACAHelp\Help\ACAHelp.chm, 4,235,344 bytes

DocProject will automatically move the file after it's generated.  Did you check the project's bin folder if you're using a DocProject and the project's Help\bin folder if you're using a DocSite?  These are the only directories in which DocProject will move compiled help files.

In my configuration file i have added docproject (Debug) . while i remove docproject it creates release/debug folder with appropriate dll's
but when i add docproject to debug version of project(this contains many projects including docproject)

Just it says that build failed.. there is no error message.

i cannot see debug folder, i tried with release folder also same result..

I tried configuring a seperate configuration setting for docproject.. but same result..

i see only build log. i dont see debug or release folder.

Really confused... the log does not lead any where.. because there is no error.

I dont see any folders other than BuildLog file..

I use docproject.

please help...

Hi,

What do you mean by, "In my configuration file I have added DocProject (Debug)"?  Are you referring to a configuration file for your build server software?  What software are you using as a build server?

You can try building your DocProject on your build server using MSBuild on the command-line, just to make sure that it's not DocProject that is causing the problem.  See How To Build Compiled Help With MSBuild.

Where exactly does it say "build failed"?  Is it a message from DocProject or from your build server?  Did you check the Application event log for an error message?

DocProject does not generate a BuildLog file, so that must be generated by your build software.

I'll need more information about your environment to be able to help you.

Hi dev,

I have a seperate configuration for docproject which will help files from selected dll.

this is the configuration in TFSconfig

<

ConfigurationToBuild Include="Debug|Any CPU">

 

<

FlavorToBuild>ACAHelpOut</FlavorToBuild>

 

<

PlatformToBuild>Any CPU</PlatformToBuild>

 

</

ConfigurationToBuild>

I have modified the DOCproject csproj please find the configuration


<PropertyGroup Condition=" '$(Configuration)|$(Platform)' == 'ACAHelpOut|AnyCPU' ">
    <OutputPath>bin\Debug\</OutputPath>
    <!--      <OutputPath>bin\ACAHelpOut\</OutputPath>-->
  </PropertyGroup>


Now.. its building all the associated dll and generates the output.

but I see both of these in running condition not completed one

1)compiling sources for any CPU/ACAHelpOut
2) project building  tfsbuild.proj" is building 'aca.sln" with default target

I cannot see the copied folder/chm files in the designatged foler. I just see buildlog in buildserver drop folder


When i dont check DOCproject in other project configurattio it generates the output for other project

Please find the build output

Any Hlep dev, i am struggling with this..

i cannot see the output directory... thanks
Mar 18, 2009 at 3:54 AM

Hi,

 

There's no need to start a new thread for the same issue, so let's continue the discussion in your original thread in case it will be helpful to others:

 

http://docproject.codeplex.com/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=50347

 

I'm at work right now so I don't have time to review your posts; although, it seems from a quick glance at the output that DocProject is doing its job, so I suspect that the problem is with your build server configuration, which means that I'll probably be of little help.

 

It appears that DocProject has executed the HTML Help Workshop program, which successfully created a .chm file.  DocProject also verfied that the output exists in the target output directory (typically the project's bin folder or Help\bin for DocSites).  If the file is missing then I suspect some other force is at work here and its probably beyond the scope of my knowledge about your build software and configuration.

 

When I get some time I'll review your posts and see if I can provide any suggestions.

 

- Dave


Thanks dev,

I will investigate it further..
