PS Studio 2019 MSI Won't Build

Post by mar10c »

When I click "Build" in Deploy > Build. It doesn't do anything meaning the msi file is not generated. I included all necessary files in the build.

Usually PSBuild creates some type of output. If you would share that with us, that would be helpful.

What it is there is a file no longer needed, but it is showing in the files. Trying to remove it but it is greyed out?

Please understand that we cannot see your screen or access you computer. So please keep that in mind when posting information. It will keep us from having to ask for more detail and we will be able to help you faster.
What version of PowerShell Studio are you running?
Can you make a screenshot of the entire dialog or form where this snippet above is from?
It is too indistinct to determine where it is from.

Files are greyed out usually when they are read only. Please select and click the red X. Does that remove the entry?

The red X does not remove the entry. The files are not read-only

Actually the X does not turn red when any of the greyed out files is selected.

Can you please provide a screenshot of the Tools Output panel when you attempt to build.

Can you please provide the .psbuild file for this project?
The files that are grayed out, are they apart of a PowerShell Studio project? If they are project files marked with the Build Action 'Content', then the files will not be able to be deleted.

Also, please note there was a reported issue with this build in regards to this dialog as the sizing of it is off which may cause issues with functionality.
