Hi all,

I'm using orca script + pbc210 to compile our application. 

Both files are attached (orca script and powershell script which is executed by TeamCity)

When I'm building application with PB or using scripts there is icon in exe file.


When I'm using PBAutoBuild210 the resulting exe has no icon.

Icon file is in root dir of project (there is pbt, pbr, pbl, pbw also).

Icon filename (without directory) is set by app painter and the filename is stored in sra file in variable : 

string appicon = "KZ.ico"

I thing that the problem is merging changes from git (ws_objects/* files) because all pbls are restored from exported files. 

In orca script there is 3pass refresh and in PBAutoBuild it seems that there is only FullBuild.

I tried everything what I thought could help.

Thank you Ales


build.orca + build.ps1 = files which are used to build on TC server and everything is ok.

buid_future.ps1 + konzultace.json = files used to build using PBAutoBuild210 and there is no icon in exe

after while Appeon found the problem and suggest workaround, but I think we will stay with orca/pbc solution until bug is removed.


Here is Bug report if someone is curious:

Hi Aleš ;

  Also, make sure that ...

  1. The ICO file is between 16x16 => 256x256 pixels with a maximum of a 32bit colour depth.
  2. The previous EXE file has been deleted from the build target directory.


Regards ... Chris

I did create ticket, so we will see if something can be done to create exe with icon :-)

Thank you.

Hi Ales .. yes, I see ticket #7338 in the queue now. BTW: I also see that you are using ORCA in front of the PBAutoBuild utility. Note that you no longer need to use ORCAScript for processing the SCM repository ahead of the compile. The PBAutoBuild utility can do it all.

I know.

orcascript + build.ps1 is current build process.

build_future.ps1 is the new build. Getting sources from git is done by TeamCity build server, so orca/pbautobuild only merge changes from ws_objects dir and compile.
