Arguments

Specify arguments for the command to run. This field is of PseudoFormatted Type and can be edited using Smart Edit Control.

ImportantIt is important to enclose the paths in quotation marks (" ") otherwise the operations might not be executed correctly or will return an error code. This usually happens when the folder, file name contains spaces or more then 8 characters.

Build

Log Description

Specify the text showed in the build log when the event is executed. This field is of PseudoFormatted Type and can be edited using Smart Edit Control.

Execute this before EXE packing

If this option is enabled the event will be executed before the MSI package will be inserted into the final EXE file. This option makes sense only if the Create EXE setup file option is enabled in the Configuration Tab, otherwise it will act as a normal Post-Build event.

TipThis option can be used only for Post-Build Events, because this is the only moment when an event can be scheduled after the creation of the MSI file and before the EXE file is generated.

Cancel build in case of launch failure

Enable this option in order for the build process to be interrupted if the specified command returns with an error.
