New Standalone Package Builder Released!

The new Standalone Package Builder is released and available for immediate use. The process has started to post this on SupportCentral, but in the meantime you can download it from the mspreleases folder of compass here: http://compass.mot-solutions.com/go/msp_post331/PackageBuilder_1.0.msi

Package Builder is a stand-alone application that replaces the Legacy AirBEAM Package Builder for use with Motorola Solutions' Mobility Services Platform. While the Legacy AirBEAM Package Builder will no longer be included with MSP, Legacy AirBEAM Packages can still be imported and deployed with MSP. The new Package Builder also adds new functionality like the ability to create Android and Apple packages to be deployed to devices. You can use the .msi to install it on any workstation and once installed, use the Help feature to get more details about the various features.

Thanks for the post!  So

Thanks for the post!  So moving forward we will still provide a standalone package builder, it's just the "airbeam" package builder is what has gone EOL.

Is this version of the builder the same as the one that is integrated into MSP? Or are these completely different with different functions?

Andy - I've only played

Andy - I've only played around with this for a few hours but I'm really impressed with the look and usability so far. Go ahead and pass  I just wanted to check on what documentation will be made available once this goes through the full supportcentral web positing process. If there's already a reference guide can you make it available here? Specifically I'd like a document outlining what looks to be newly available templates for adding files (e.g - Persistent CAB Install 2).

We're undecided about

We're undecided about replacing the OS Update package builder at this time.  OSUPPB contains components from other organizations within Motorola that are not supported.  So that's why OSUPPB has never been a released product but is in permanent beta.

Hi, The error could be caused

Hi,

The error could be caused because of associating a file without providing an install command. In your case I suspect you’re doing the same for StartUpLdr.exe

If that is the case, Please follow the steps below

1. Add all the files which are required using general template

2. Navigate to commands section of package builder

3. Click on "Add New command" button

4. In the command section enter the install command

For ex: for startUPldr.exe you need to provide the command as

\Temp\StartUpLdr.exe

5. Generate an APF and it should be successful

If this does not solve the issue please attach the project file (*.mspproj) for debugging purpose


Thanks & Regards,
Avinash

Steffen, I got the same

Steffen,

I got the same error message when did something wrong with the install command section.

Also you don't need all the files in OS update package, from what I could see in your screenshot.
The only files you need is following:
pkgs.lst
StartUpdLdr.exe
FLASH.bin
modem.smb.
partition.mbn

all other files is used for rescue a device using specific USB Loader tool from what I understand.
Don't forget to set the Alternate Storage to "\"  (I believe MSP agent caches first to Application) otherwise you will run out of memory.

Anyway here is the project file:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6744924/MC65OEM2301.mspproj

Complete working APF just in case:

Hi, After looking into your

Hi,

After looking into your mspproj file, i observed that the install command was missing.You had just browsed the file but did not add the command

I have attached the screen shot which explains you where to add a command

I am also attaching the modified mspproj file that contains the install command. With this you will be able to successfully generate an APF

Thanks & Regards,
Avinash

Thanks, I did not know that

Thanks,

I did not know that I need to type in the command manually. I thought after selecting the file in the box above it is sufficient.
It is working now.
