I want to add a conditional build for some steps. I've got a file which I process through about three levels to get an output file. If the output file is newer than the input file, it's not worth the trouble.

I've added a group into my script with a condition on it:


I've obviously messed somehting up, because it always says

Building project step 'Build only if newer'...
Error expanding macros or script in property condexpr: <Error in System (VBScript) script code at Line 258, Column 3 (Variable is undefined: 'FileOutOfDate')>

Could you give me an example please?

Actually, there is a bug in the VBScript vbld_FileOutOfDate system script function (the error you described will occur if the target file doesn't exist). Building the attached file and restarting VBP will fix it.

Thanks for that.

It seems to me this is a case for an FAQ entry, to stop someone else having the same problem.
