Attn chcg: Appveyor artifacts for Session Manager Plugin 1.4.2.5 disappeared



  • Hi,

    When I first clicked the GitHub link (https://ci.appveyor.com/project/chcg/npp-session-manager/build/1.4.2.5), there were artifacts for both the 32 and 64 bit SessionMgr.dll, but after closing my browser session and later returning, both artifacts had disappeared.

    On first visiting the link I noticed a warning that stated artifacts older that 6 months would be removed, but because they were there initially I assumed they’d be there when I returned.

    Any advice please?



  • That’s right appveyor has a new policy regarding older artifacts. Unfortunately seesion manager PR with this changes doesn’t get merged and there seems to be no new development.
    So the only option I see is creating a own release or at least rebuild the branch on appveyor, but that would just available for the next six month again.



  • Thanks for the reply Christian,

    Yeah, well, rebuild huh? Before i noticed “vs2015 compilers are used with this config” I installed vs2017 community but couldn’t figure out how I should add the environment variables or how I should modify the setenv,cmd file as per instructions in makefile.

    I uninstalled vs2017 and then installed vs2015 community (which was problematic in itself), but still couldn’t figure out the env vars and how to modify setenv.cmd.

    Long and the short of it, naivety has gotten the better of me and unless some kind soul can walk me through the build process, or perform the build for me, it seems I’ll be stuck with the original 1.4.2.

    Any takers? :)



  • See https://github.com/mike-foster/npp-session-manager/pull/2/files appveyor.yml, just need to call “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat” %archi% before nmake in the repo root dir with the makefile. There is also a command shell available in the windows startmenu of VS2015/VS2017 which already contains the necessary env settings.

    VS2017 would be “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvarsall.bat” %archi%

    I rebuilded:
    https://ci.appveyor.com/project/chcg/npp-session-manager/build/1.4.2.6



  • Much appreciated Christian, thank you.
