How to trigger build using a customized com file

Post by samueal » Mon Jan 20, 2020 11:55 pm

I was trying to use the VMS IDE to upload the existing project and we use some build .com files, I'm unable to use the custom .com file, it works only with the create mms function, am I missing something. please help with the steps to be followed to use our custom .com files

I went through the wiki again, I saw the below details

Open the Project Explorer view:
In the PROJECT DESCRIPTION section, right-click the buildName parameter, then select Change
In the popup list select the required configuration.

I don't find the buildname parameter listed in my visual studio code, is there any special setting to be changed to enable this? please help to sort this issue.

I would also very much like a more detailed build guide, the rest of the wiki is pretty ok, but building from a script that uses a precompiler, having the files end up in the right directory and have that set correcly is very confusing.
