Yes it is. I walk through the process a webinar I did late last year:https://developer.motorolasolutions.com/docs/DOC-1651
Also discussed here: http://docs.rhomobile.com/rhodes/build#build-for-windows
To build installer bundle use command:
$ rake device:win32:production
After the build process is finished you can find the installer bundle named
Ah, it is in the docs... I should have done a better search first, thanks!
I've never been able to local-build a proper installer package for Win32. Instead, the compiled stuff is somewhere in Rhostudio sub-folder. Of course, there's an .exe there and double-clicking that runs the app.
Stranger still is that the same app that compiles locally (albeit without generating a Windows installer package), seems to build successfully in Rhohub, but when downloaded has nothing but some log file and an app_info.txt or some such
On a related note, I think it'd be useful if the build size is also shown up on Rhohub, so we can avoid wasting time downloading an empty build.
After reading the documentation and viewing your webinar, I still experienced errors. Turns out I never installed Visual C++ with my Visual Studio, because we develop in .Net (C#) only. So maybe that is a helpful addition to the documentation.
I also tried to use msbuild (VS2010) instead of vcbuild (VS2008), which should work according to the documentation. Msbuild is executed with the following parameters:
msbuild /M4 rhodes.sln "Release|Win32"
But msbuild does not know the /M4 parameter, so that failed. I tried to build the app using msbuild manually, which could be done using the command:
msbuild rhodes.sln /p:Configuration=Release /p:Platform=Win32
I can use VS2008, so for me it is not a problem that building does not work with VS2010 out of the box. But this might be a problem for other people, so what needs to be done to make this work with "rake build:win32"?
