Nesting Process Files Action
I tried to nest two process files actions.
I know that this is not possible according to the help, but I think that this is just a problem of implementation:

Process files A
. Process files B

This partly works. For the second FILE1, it will have the correct file name, but the folder of the process files B action.

In my opinion there should not be a problem nesting two process files actions if the script implementer takes care of saving the temporary PROCFILES_* macros, so I consider this as some kind of bug, at least a missing feature :-)

What's a workaround for nested Processed Files?
it is so true how you described this problem.

The problem is with the PROCFILES_FULLPATH macro which does not get updated properly on the second round in netsed Processed Files.

I know it is not recommended to have nested Processed Files.

Kinook, what's a workaround for this? I need to Process files, find a file then process another folder and find some files based on the first search.

In ohter words something like two loops. Any ideas?

thank you

For one of the loops, store the filenames in a macro and use a repeating build rule to iterate.

Or put the inner loop in another .bld file and call it with the VisBuildPro Project action.
