With the new beta, compiling a program creates an .xml file.

I was able to run an application after deleting the .xml file so I am wondering, what is it's purpose and is it ever required?

Hi Roland;

   This is used by the PowerClient Project in the IDE over to the PC server during the deployment process. It lets the PC deployment know what PB run-time & build that App uses and where to locate this on the IDE's machine. So after a successful PC Deployment yes, you can delete this XML file as it will be rebuilt again on the next deployment.

Regards ... Chris

The PBORCA_ExecutableCreate function produces the file. If possible, it would be nice to make it optional.

It is ALSO used by the exe at runtime to add the runtime path to the exe when it runs.
