Hello, we have a problem with the build of one of our application with orcascript since last week.

We use PowerBuilder 2019 build 2170 with TFS2018 as our source control.
Every night at 1 am, a build of all our application start using orcascript.
For every application, we have a batch file who calls 2 orcascripts and then create a zip of the build :
- The first one for a GetLatestVersion of the app
- The second one for the build library (around 30 libraries) and the build exe of the app

It worked fine for years (Previously on PB12, now PB2019), but since last week one of our app is not built properly. The MyApp.exe file created is not working.
The size of the exe is only 50Kb when its usually 1.2Mb, we also see that there is a MyApp.tmp (I think it's use during a build)

Now, we have to get the last working pbls of the app and launch a manual build to build properly.
But once again, the next night it will not work on the automate process.

We don't know if the problem is with TFS, or ORCA, or us.

You can see the 2 orca files in the attachments.

We always save the output log. I forgot to upload it. It's now in the attachment.

You can see that during the build, the set liblist is cut short.

Another point unrelated, i found that the getlatestversion is very long, is it normal too ?

use redirects to save output to a log file so you can look at it.

something like:

orcascr190 yourbuild.orca >> build.log
