Running a short build from cfg stage

Running a short build from cfg stage

On the Tools menu, click Short Build from CFG Stage

Since it is not recommended that you use this tool as a replacement for a full build, a warning message will appear:

Clicking OK will run the short build from CFG stage (Hyperlink and the MediaView compiler).

  • It will not re-process files from which databases and graphics can be extracted, including Composer database files, so changes to those files will not be picked up.
  • Basic checks and iterations usually performed in a build will not be included.

A short build from cfg stage can be useful

  • to test a newer version of Hyperlink, for example to see if it can process files previously excluded from a build
  • or if you have manually edited your .CFG file and want to check the results.

It is not otherwise recommended as a replacement for full builds, since a short build from cfg cannot identify all the changes in your system.
