Project Configuration

Add to your project a new file called Catalog.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <Project Name="ToolWindow" Location=".">
        <File Name="ToolWindow.dll" Target="Packages" />
        <File Name="ToolWindow.pdb" Target="Packages" />

Modify the project post-build event command line to:

"$(GX_SDK_DIR)\Tools\Updater" ..\..\Catalog.xml ..\..\ "$(GX_PROGRAM_DIR)"\ $(Configuration)
"$(GX_PROGRAM_DIR)"\Genexus /install

When your project is build, it will be copied to the GeneXus version and installed.
