I’m running into some problems with octo.exe with the pack option. I am running octo from a batch script that is being called after my TFS build drops to its file location. When the script runs, I get the following error:
Octopus Deploy Command Line Tool, version 126.96.36.199 Packing AlphaTaskService version 2014.10.24.161645... Saving AlphaTaskService.2014.10.24.161645.nupkg to \\[serverName]\BuildOutput\AlphaTaskService\AlphaTaskService_20141024.17\..\..\_packages... System.InvalidOperationException: Cannot create a package that has no dependencies nor content. at NuGet.PackageBuilder.Save(Stream stream) at OctopusTools.Commands.PackCommand.Execute(String commandLineArguments at OctopusTools.Program.Main(String args)
The obvious thought is that my output folder is empty, except it is not. When I run the same command directly from command line, I do not get this error. Another piece of data is I’m getting two .nupkgs generated. One (AlphaTaskService.2014.10.24.161645.nupkg) is 0KB in size, the other is (AlphaTaskService.2014.10.24.161646.nupkg) 2,009KB. I’m guessing the script is throwing errors on the empty sized file, but I have no idea how this is getting created since I only have one call to Octo.exe in the script.
The batch script call is
%OCTO_DIR%\octo.exe pack --id=%TF_BUILD_BUILDDEFINITIONNAME% --basePath=%OUTPUT_DIR% --outFolder=%OCTO_DIR% --overwrite
Anyone have suggestions on things I should look for?
Thanks for your help!
